The Novel

The novel comes in all shapes, sizes and formats. The freedom to literally go anywhere and do anything can be a blessing and a curse. The opportunities and choices can be paralyzing. In this workshop we will look at several genres of the novel, both classic and contemporary, and discuss what works and why. We’ll also examine what’s best-suited for the novel you are writing or want to write. We will share one another’s works-in-progress for guidance and feedback as well as read excerpts of different novels. This workshop is meant to be fun, encouraging, and a path to being inspired by the possibility of the novel.
