Write Your Novel I

How many years have you been threatening to write that novel? Or do you have a few chapters already complete? Gather up your journals and notes and those half-written chapters and learn how to cobble together a clear and manageable strategy to develop your story ideas and begin writing your novel. Receive individual feedback and focused critique on your writing plan and subsequent completed chapters. Stop thinking about it and finally start writing. This workshop will meet once a month for six months with online weekly check-ins. A copy of Walter Mosley's This Year You Write Your Novel is included in the price of the workshop.

Workshop Leader: Cole Lavalais

Dates: Thursdays, 6:00pm- 8:00pm (1/25, 2/22, 3/22, 4/26, 6/28 & 7/26) .
