So You Have the Burning Itch to be a Novelist? with Lilas Taha

$200.00

***All Proceeds from this Workshop will go towards the Greater Houston Community Foundation Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund***

This interactive workshop offers insight into the elements required for writing a novel. Participants will learn how to create believable characters with clear motivation and obstacles to overcome as well as story development through scene, imagery, conflict, adequate dramatization and ending. Each session includes exercises that explore writer’s voice, tone of the narrative, and issues pertaining to point of view. Participants will learn methods to create the specific mood of the story, explore personal style, and will have the opportunity to submit their already written work to receive critique and feedback. No special equipment or material is required, other than the preferred method of taking notes. All classwork and homework material will be provided.
