with Elise Chidley

 

In this workshop, we'll spend roughly half the time reviewing the craft aspects of writing a novel, such as narrative arc, pacing, character development, backstory, dialogue, and point of view. Using examples from published work, we'll explore techniques and tools you can apply to your own work. The remaining time will be spent giving and receiving feedback on your pages.
