Writing the Popular Novel 

Days: 6 Wednesdays
Time: 7:00 PM-9:30 PM
Dates: 3/29–5/3
Location: Bethesda
Level: All Levels
Genre(s): Fiction

Workshop Leader: Kathryn Johnson
Whether you’re penning a mystery, family saga, action-adventure tale, Western, science fiction, love story, historical novel, or a book based on personal experiences—understanding today’s readers’ (and therefore, publishers’) preferences will smooth your way toward a completed story that others will want to read. Even today’s award-winning literary authors (e.g., Jonathan Franzen, Donna Tartt, Haruki Murakami) borrow extensively from what we once thought of as elements of “commercial” fiction. Learn how to shape your novel through tried-and-true techniques of these and other best-selling authors. You’ll apply what you learn to your work-in-process, and receive one-on-one feedback from the instructor for scenes selected from your story. (Note: This is not a workshopping class. The emphasis will be on technique growth and application, not on critiquing each other’s work.)
