The PWW Master classes are only available as part of the weekend package.

In this workshop, we'll explore the process of beginning a novel. We'll discuss the creative origins of a long project. We'll talk about the novel writing process, how to make and use outlines and synopses, various novel structures, and how to keep going. Each student may bring a one-page synopsis and up to three pages of a novel-in-progress, double-spaced, in 12-point font. We will constructively explore the potential in each project.
This Master Class is included in the Writing Weekend Package. Please register for the package to enjoy ALL the events for the package price of 350 euros.
