First drafts of novels can be messy, amorphous, and daunting. Sometimes, extensive critical feedback can be counterproductive before the first draft is finished, yet writers often find themselves losing focus without support and guidance. In class, we will do exercises, discuss craft issues—characterization, the protagonist's desire, plot and outlining, point of view, voice, dialogue—and read short scenes from each other's work, providing feedback in an environment that recognizes the specific challenges of the novel in progress. In the last class, all writers will be invited to submit twenty pages of their novels to receive a written critique from the instructor. Novels of all genres are welcome. Please bring the first page (double-spaced, 12-point font) of your novel to the first class.

Please note: There will be no class on May 21st or May 28th. The last day of the class is July 2nd.
