Experienced writers understand that novels improve incrementally with each draft. This course teaches the skills of revision and the attention to detail it takes to make a good story great.
In this In this six-week online course with international best selling novelists, Annabel Lyon and Nancy Lee, we’ll explore the editorial process from macro to micro. From a far-reaching analysis of the three journeys every novel must take–internal, external, aesthetic–to a tight focus on the rigorous choices associated with prose style, learners will hone critical skills and develop a rewriting plan tailored to the needs of their individual projects.
Through self-evaluation and discussion with fellow writers, learners will build an autonomous writing practice and discover a community of peers familiar with the challenges and aspirations of novel writing.
