Are you looking for a top-tier MFA-style novel class that will help you dig more deeply into your writing? Have you been longing to find a group of dedicated, talented writers to workshop pages with? In this 5-week Advanced Novel Workshop, successful novelist Lauren Strasnick (4 published novels) will help you nudge your book to the finish line. You’ll learn advanced techniques for opening scenes, introducing main characters, advanced scene writing, subplots, suspense, exposition and the creative process. This class is designed for students who have taken an intermediate novel writing class before and have made significant progress with their books. We strongly suggest that you start class with a detailed outline and several chapters written. If you like, you can even bring in up to 1000 words for feedback each week! With the aid of fun, hands-on exercises and balanced workshopping sessions, you will have made a significant dent in your brilliant book by the last session of this class. Before you know it, you’ll be writing those last 2 words (The End).
