You’ve always wanted to write a novel, but aren’t sure how. Or maybe you tried and got bogged down, or lost steam, or don’t know what to do next. Have no fear! Through class discussions and readings, we’ll break down the novel-writing process into steps to help you work through the roadblocks holding you back. You’ll develop your own novel idea or manuscript through writing exercises and revision assignments. By the end of the course, you’ll have made concrete progress on your project and will take away an action plan for what to do next.
