Have you taken that important step and started writing your first novel? Are you at the halfway stage or beginning your second draft? Are you encountering problems with structure, character development, dialogue, backstory, location, timeline or other issues that only became apparent as you progressed? If so, Your First Novel - The Halfway Stage, can help to bring your novel to conclusion.
Participants will be encouraged to discuss their work, to explore the theme of their story, the interaction between characters, the use of dialogue, the development of plot, the importance of location and time frame, and the style and genre they have chosen. How to present a finished manuscript for publication will be covered, along with current publishing opportunities and market trends. Writers are invited to submit one chapter of their novel in advance of the class.
