Did you know that there are over 140 types of fiction? In this course, you'll learn which types best suit your ideas. From there, it’s all about plots and subplots, outlines, point of view, timelines, information dumps, character development, flow and pace. These six interactive classes will offer a trove of information to take your ideas from "flop" to fabulous, with assignments that range from simple iambic pentameter to writing hooks and creating surreal settings. By the end of the course, you'll have a solid understanding of what goes into your novel of choice, and how to create a novel that readers will love.
A full course refund will only be provided if you withdraw from a course prior to the course start date. For courses with more than one class, a refund, less a minimum $15 administrative fee may be issued if you withdraw prior to the second class. Depending on your method of payment, a refund will be either mailed to you or credited to your credit card.
