Write & Publish Your Novel This Year (Full-day)

This all-day workshop is directed primarily at writers in any genre and of any age and skill level.

Author and professor Jessica Lourey will use a mixture of lecture, in-class activities, writing, and Q & A to guide you through her foolproof and exciting seven-step process for turning an idea into a novel, including:

• Writing memorable characters,
• Building a page-turning plot,
• Creating cinematic, multi-purpose settings,
• Editing effectively, and
• Finding an agent or self-publishing.

This workshop is ideal for every writer, regardless of genre or level of skill. Bring your ideas, 10 pages of your work in progress (if you have a WIP), and writing materials (paper and pen or laptop) and prepare to write that book!

(This session runs from 6-8 hours spread across one or more days based on host's need. AV equipment—screen, wireless projector or projector with USB adapter on other end of cord—required.)
