Class Description

It is said that a typical contemporary novel has twelve major scenes. In this course, you will plant the seeds of six novel scenes, some or all of which may end up being "major scenes." You may have a novel in progress or you may be starting out with only an idea. Either way, the goal is to come out of this course with 6 scenes that can carry emotional weight and promise change in the characters. We will discuss both the lessons and your work. This course will include craft lessons, outside readings, writing exercises, and supportive and generative comments on each other's writing. In addition, each of you will have the opportunity to workshop one scene written either for this class or prior to it.
