Write Your Novel
Taught by a multi-published novelist, this course will guide your student through the vital elements of storytelling and the process of writing a twenty chapter novel in an interactive and supportive environment. Students will learn about character and plot development, creating believable conflict, developing solid story structure, delving into theme, showing versus telling, and publishing industry standards of editing.
Write Your Novel also provides students with detailed feedback on writing, editing, and chapter assignments that will reinforce mastery of all writing techniques studied in class.
Another key feature of the Write Your Novel course is the community of writers this course provides. Students work together to support, brainstorm, and collaborate on individual novels.
Students may choose any genre of story to write for this course.
