This class will prepare you for the big picture review of your novel. With the use of contemporary and classic novels as examples, you will evaluate the progress on the plot arc and character development within your story. Other parts of craft will be reviewed as well, including point of view, conflict, and subplots to determine where the story as a whole is working or needs revision. For the workshop portion of the course we will focus on endings. This does not mean you have to have completed your novel, but we will begin the work to develop a last chapter, an essential way to determine what should really be in the middle. We'll explore the world of publishing and create query letters and synopses that will help you focus the revision that will give rise to your second draft.
