Breathing Life into your Novel
Fiction | with Anne Perry & Victoria Zackheim
Anne Perry, the author of more than ninety novels, many on the New York Times bestseller list, and Victoria Zackheim, novelist, playwright, and instructor in the UCLA Writers’ Program, are not only dear friends, but they have collaborated on many projects and taught workshops together. Both of them are dedicated to the working with authors to create compelling and marketable plots, and to take those fictional (or fictionalized) characters and give them unique and memorable voices.
This workshop will guide you through the basics of creating your novel. Plot and character development, back story, identifying/developing/portraying character arcs, learning about continuity, conflict, and then resolution. Add to this instruction on outlining the novel, organizing scenes, building tension…and editing.
By the end of this four-day course, you will have the skeleton…and good amount of flesh!…for your novel.
Would you like to pull your readers into a story they cannot resist? This is a good place to start!
