Have you always dreamed of writing whimsical tales that take place in a futuristic world of your own creation? In this five week Los Angeles intermediate science fiction horror fantasy novel class, successful science fiction writer and horror movie writer Jennifer Brody (3 books published) will help you nudge your book to the finish line!
Through fun, in-class writing exercises and engaging craft talks, she’ll help you create compelling characters and build a fascinating world with vivid details, a thrilling story arc, and irresistible dialogue. This class is designed for students who have taken a novel writing class before and have made some progress on their novels, whether it is a high level outline, or a few chapters generated. If you like, you can even bring in up to 1000 words of your novel for targeted feedback! By the end of the class, you’ll have completed a high level outline of a riveting dystopian, horror or fantastical tale, and have some scenes to boot.
Prerequisites: Novel class at Writing Pad or elsewhere and a high level outline of novel and/or a draft of a chapter.
