Novel Workshop with Stephen Jay Schwartz

Course Number: CRWT 851.E


0 units

In this intensive two-day seminar, you’ll learn the hallmarks of successful first novels, and have the first 25 pages of your own book workshopped in class.  We'll also examine the intersection of character and setting, the mechanics of plot, the art of dialogue, the dynamics of timing and pace, and, finally, the path to publication. We'll look at your first chapter with an eye towards where it needs to go to capture a publisher's attention, but also with the aim of giving you the tools to effectively write your entire novel. Submissions for workshop are due February 14.  Students will be expected to provide written critiques for their classmates.
