Maybe you have a first draft of a novel and need to turn it into an editor-ready manuscript. Or maybe you have a partial draft, whether it's from a whirlwind National Novel Writing Month, or from years of poking away. Maybe you're just stuck in the weeds. Through a series of lectures, chats, and step-by-step exercises based on relevant examples, this class will help you find your path forward.

You'll take stock of your progress by writing a synopsis and query hook/jacket copy for the book you want to write. You'll check in with your characters. You'll untangle your plot threads and clarify your themes. You'll set goals. Finally, you'll make a week-by-week plan to finish the work that remains. This class is designed to work both for strict outliners and for those who write by the seat of their pants. Connect with other writers in the same circumstances. Make 2018 the year you finish your novel.
