"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." -Anton Chekhov The course includes thoughtful discussion of the elements of novel writing: inspiration and the sustaining of ideas, plotting, setting, character, and point of view. Students will receive feedback on their work from both the class and the teacher. Each class will be structured around writing exercises to build practical skills, a discussion of student manuscripts, as well as a lesson on important facets of narrative technique. Students will learn how to build a novel narrative (a novel outline) and how to write scenically (one strong chapter). Beginning writers welcome.

Note: Instructors: Susan Glickman (Fall term), Cordelia Strube (Winter term), and Sarah Sheard (Spring term).
