A Novel Approach to Fiction & Memoir 1st Draft
A NOVEL APPROACH FIRST DRAFT provides the discipline, encouragement, craft development and collegial support to help you complete 60,000 words (or more) of your novel or memoir over a 40 WEEK period from September to June each year.
Participants write and post up to 3,000 words every two weeks on a secure website where only your facilitator and fellow writers read and make encouraging comments. (A total of 20 workshops)
You also MEET every two weeks with your fellow writers in an online (ZOOM ROOM) workshop to write, share new writing and develop the fundamental skills needed to finish a book-length project:
- creating story
- developing interesting characters
- defining narrative arcs and emotional transformations
- designing scenes
- exploring story structure options
- deciding on points of view
- and much more…
Your writing and critiquing skills will improve as the writing year progresses, and all in the company of like-minded writers.
Maximum workshop size: 8 plus the instructor
A Novel Approach is also available as a one-on-one Mentorship ONLINE, but the number of spaces is limited. Please visit our Online Mentorship Page on our sister website anovelapproach.net for more information.
Some of our writers have been published, won awards and obtained multiple book publishing contracts.
