Whether you aspire to write fantasy, science fiction, historical, or contemporary realist novels, you’ll want to develop the skills and discover the tools that successful fiction writers use to bring their stories to life. We will focus on examples and exercises that help develop characters, setting, and atmosphere; choosing point of view; and creating and sustaining interest through conflicts. We also will look at the use of dialogue and developing distinctive voices for different characters. You will leave the week with a fair amount of writing done and a bundle of tools and insights for becoming a novelist!
