Whether you’re thinking about writing a novel, or desire to infuse new life into an unfinished project, this introductory class is for you. In this workshop, students will learn how to plot a story, develop a fiction outline (synopsis) and commit to writing the first fifty pages of their novel. *Individuals with an existing work in progress will be encouraged to review and revise the first three chapters and synopsis. Instructor will work closely with each student and offer personal guidance and feedback.
