Full Description: This week-long workshop deconstructs and demystifies the novel-writing process for struggling and/or aspiring writers. We'll go all the way from getting the nub of an idea to getting your book into the hands of expectant fans. Along the way you'll learn how to stay organized, write in the voice of another gender, the art of rewriting, and how to overcome your writing and marketing fears. By the end of our time together you'll be prepared to begin work on a novel and will be equipped with the skills to perfect it. The session will include time for writing.
