Is it your dream to write the great American novel? In this 5 week Online intro novel writing class, successful novelist Jennifer Brody will teach you the fundamentals of long form fiction! She’ll also teach you techniques for creating a thrilling story arc, irresistible dialogue, characters and conflict. If you like, you can even bring in up to 1000 words of your novel for targeted feedback every session!
With the aid of fun, hands-on exercises and balanced workshopping sessions, you’ll have completed a chapter outline of your book, and will have written some scenes to boot. Before you know it, Random House will be banging on your door! Topics include: character, description, plot, POV, dialogue, revision, setting, voice, theme and query.
If you’ve never taken a novel class before, we suggest you take Novel 101 in addition to this class.
