Course Description: We all wish we could take a summer off in Tuscany and write a novel. But it doesn't work that way. There's a lot of thought and planning that goes into it, and then there's the constant editing, switching things around and wild moments of giving up.

This series of eight sessions with 'Book Doctor' Gretel Furner will help you anticipate the complexities of novel-writing and help you build and explore the story you want to tell, find your cast of characters and try out various styles and techniques best suited to your story.

Part I is not a prerequisite for the course and new writers are welcome! 

Instructor: Dr Gretel Furner. Oxford University. PhD on the modern novel, University of the Saarland, Germany. Assoc. Professor of German, George Washington University.  Instructor, the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Since 2003 instructor at WICE in French Literature and History, the Migrant Soul series and Creative Writing.
