Class Experience

In this workshop, students will learn and discuss the basic building blocks of a novel, using novel excerpts as examples, and practice their fiction-writing skills. The teaching artist will guide students through the mental and emotional process of writing a book-length piece of fiction, and share different writers' experiences of their processes. From drafting to plot-mapping, this workshop is ideal for any young writer looking for tools to turn their short story into a full-length manuscript.
