Now Is the Time To Write Your Novel!

For those gearing up for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and for anyone else who would like to jumpstart a novel, this is the weekend for you.

In this workshop we’ll consider what ingredients make for a great story, what structures will best serve your characters and plot, and how the opening pages of your book can propel your readers into the world you’ve created.

We’ll have time to share work, strategize how to gain and sustain momentum in your story, and read and discuss a selection of irresistible novel beginnings.

Lunch is included for both days, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath.  $75/night
