This course is going to teach you how to write a novel. We will focus on the basic techniques and tools of good storytelling: voice, description, setting, character, plot, conflict, and dialogue. Soon, you will be able to write a narrative that keeps the reader hooked and excited from start to finish. The course will consist of brainstorming activities, in-class writing exercises, readings, and workshops. By the end of our time together, you will be ready to outline, draft, and polish your novel.
