Many of us share the fantasy of taking the summer off to write a novel, renting some upstairs room in the South of France, notebook in hand. Well, here’s your chance to get ready for that life-changing adventure.  A six-part series working in a small group on the basics of novel-writing, looking into what you need to know about plot, character, point of view, self-discipline and much more.  Join us for a journey through the basic skills needed, from idea to publication.

Professor of German, George Washington University.  Instructor, the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
