November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and an opportunity for everyone, whether writing their first novel or their tenth, to immerse themselves in prose. This workshop is for writers who have an idea for a book (novel or memoir) but are unsure where to begin or need a boost to start their first draft. Preparing to write your novel can be one of the most important steps in completing it. A set path decreases the chances of hitting insurmountable walls. Students will have an opportunity to deeply create characters and settings, explore POV, plot a story arc and begin writing scenes.
