  • Workshop: Plotting Your Novel from Start to Finish

    Writing a novel requires more than a great idea – it is a task that requires discipline and much hidden labour and a rollercoaster of emotions not typically anticipated by budding writers. No one knows this better than Curtis Sittenfeld, the prolific American author of multiple novels, including her most recent book Romantic Comedy. In this insightful workshop, Sittenfeld will guide you through the craft, logistics and emotions of completing a novel. Drawing from her own successful, decades-long career, she’ll provide practical tips on getting started and keeping going with your writing and share advice on developing plot, characters and narrative structure for your story.
