Service Description

Workshop Information: So we’re doing something different this year! And why not? It’s our 25th anniversary. :) In this middle grade/young adult novel class, we’ll focus on writing the verse novel (or other novels that play with line in some way or are epistolary works etc.) as well as the normal prose novel. We’ll talk about structure, voice, moving your story forward, character development, and emotion. We’ll work on 4,000 words of your book, preparing your words in such a way that you generate interest in a compelling way. As well, we’ll look closely at line breaks (if you bring a novel in verse) to see if they’re doing their job, if language is working for you the way it should, and if the book is working as presented. **PLEASE NOTE: You DO NOT need to write a verse novel to take this class. All work is accepted.
