Instructor: Shirley Jump
October 1-15; $60
This two week class covers the basics of Goal,
Motivation, and Conflict, but also helps you develop a powerful plot
that creates a strong, memorable novel. Participants will take an
idea, or an existing plot, and develop a strong outline that gives
them a ready-to-write book.
