Writing a novel is hard work but work worth doing, and the hardest part for a first-timer is not knowing what you’re doing. This four-week, mostly asynchronous studio will help you decide if you want to write a novel, and, if so, will help make the journey much less fraught. Through recorded lectures, readings, online discussions, and short assignments, we will examine the structures of stories, protagonists and their journeys, story worlds, story time, genre, point of view—and the habit, discipline, and support needed to get it done. Note: this course also includes two optional Zoom sessions, April 17 and May 15 at 6 pm. This is a great choice if you’re considering applying for Authors Lab. (Non-member fee includes a one-year Charlotte Lit General Membership.)
