How to Start Your Novel

Event Date: 
Repeats every day 2 times.
Saturday, November 7, 2020 - 2:00pm to 4:30pm
Event Details: 

The goal of this workshop is simplegetting you going on a novel that keeps going. Starting, some say, is the easy part. But starting a novel that you'll actually finish is a whole other kettle of fish, one that retains an air of mystery even to well-published veterans of the art. We'll try to peer into that mystery in this two-day course, examining a number of particularly successful novel openings, both past and present, as well as discussing strategies for getting oneself started (sometimes starting *is* the hard part!), and then working on a number of exercises. Hopefully, by the end, students will have the opening of their first novel.
