Coming Soon: Design a Novel Weekend Workshop
Join us October 16 & 17 for the Design a Novel Weekend Workshop!
In this Zoom workshop facilitated by author, Naomi Kinsman, we’ll design a solid foundation for your draft. You’ll learn new tools and strategies to strengthen your writing craft skills, be inspired by ideas and writing by creative peers, and walk step-by-step through the process of developing a strong novel concept. You’ll walk away with at least one drafted scene, plus a complete plan to build from this solid foundation through the drafting process.
A special thanks to Colby Sharp for sharing with us! You can find Special SIGNED EDITIONS of Colby Sharp’s book, The Creativity Project, here.
