This class explores the basic ingredients of the novel: character, plot, setting, point of view, theme. Over four weeks we will review the core techniques of novel-writing and examine excerpts from established writers to see what works and what doesn't. You will be encouraged to consider how these techniques apply to your own writing. Wherever you are in your writing, the course will help you achieve a new nevel in the long path from idea to print.
