6:00-8:00 Storying

Do you have a novel hiding in your head? A picture book in a long-neglected drawer? Or maybe you write every day and want to get your project ready to publish. Whether you write for adults or for children, this class, tailored to your writing, will give you the community, structure, and expert advice you need to move forward. 

Notewordies in Kirkland | Alternate Wednesdays, October 3 – December 19

1:30-3:30 The Plot Thickens

We will meet in person on Oct 3, 17, 31, Nov 14, 28, Dec 12, with critique webinar sessions during the “off” weeks. In-person sessions will also be livestreamed for those who wish to take the class remotely.

In this course, students will focus on structuring the novel–often the most challenging part of novel-writing. Discover the three words that drive your entire story. Find out how to avoid mid-novel sag and how to keep your reader turning pages all the way to the end. By the end of the session you will have a complete outline of your novel, and a synopsis–“The story of the story”.
