This workshop will deconstruct and demystify 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 the opposite sex, 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. Sessions will include time for writing.

LIVE VIDEO CONFERENCE: This workshop will be held via our online video conferencing platform, Zoom. The dates and times will remain the same. You can view brief tutorials on using the platform here. Shortly before the start date participants will recieve an email with login info. Please check your spam if you don’t see it.
