Course Descriptions

Writing the Novel: Introduction

If you want to write a novel, and have no idea how to start or complete a first draft, this course is for you. You’ll learn the story elements of a novel. Then you’ll plan your own book-in-progress and practice writing parts of the story in your own style. We’ll cover effective novel writing techniques and practical advice for getting a draft done. With step-by-step guidance, by the end of the course you’ll have the opening of your novel, and a personal plan to keep going. Register for my online section for the new and enhanced course.

Sessions run in Fall, Winter and Spring. 

Writing the Novel II

This course continues from the introduction, with tips and techniques on how to avoid a messy middle and how to end your novel. This is also a course geared for feedback so you can get valuable insights and notes on what you've been working on. Register for my online section for the new and enhanced course.

Sessions run in Fall, Winter and Spring.

The Writing Freedom Course

This online course is a creative boost and introduction to the joys of expressive writing. It's for people who've always wanted to write but don't know where to begin, and for seasoned writers who want to approach their practice in a new way. Launching this winter.
