Five Ways to Fix Your Novel

You can have all the ingredients of a terrific novel—a dynamic plot, intriguing characters, beautiful description, a bright writing style—but the book fails. This workshop identifies the five key issues that writers must take into account and how you can go wrong with each of them. Class topics include choosing point of view, navigating time and space, writing descriptions that work, active versus passive verbs, and the power of showing as opposed to telling. Examples from literature will help us understand the elements of sound writing. You have to know the rules before you can break them. Leave class with a better capacity to edit your own work. Stacy Ericson is an editor and a fiction writer. She has an editor’s eye for problems and a poet’s heart for passion and can help you avoid pitfalls so your writing can soar.
