In this advanced program I will draw the previously developed elements together. Participants will be expected to have some facility with writing both scenes and character stories – as described in the previous course descriptions. These are now woven together to craft a novel-length story that draws from the rich and evolving experiences of multiple compelling characters and the interactions between them to convey a complete and satisfying narrative experience.
Note: it is not required that attendees have been through my Phase 1 or Phase 2 programs, so long as they have a grasp of the concepts discussed at those levels, and some comfort in working with them.
Workshop Format: 5 hrs (best suited to novella-length works)
Course Format: 4-6 sessions of 3 hrs each, plus 2-4 hrs of homework between sessions
