If you want to write a novel but are unsure of how to pull it all together, this course will guide you through everything you need to know to complete your first draft. Discover how to: create plausible plots and subplots; build charming, compelling characters; and keep the reader interested with tension, conflict and curiosity. We'll also focus on finding assistance from editors, proofreaders and graphic designers, and how to snag an agent/publisher or to self-publish.
Classes are interactive with take-home assignments. Group participation is encouraged.
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.
