As spring springs to life, it’s a great time to get focused on nurturing your novel. Get ready to set some personal goals, learn about novel writing-related topics, get feedback on your work, and make progress writing or revising your book.

Participants will meet with Kristie one-on-one early on to talk about their novel and set goals for what they will accomplish during the class. Class sessions will include topics and activities related to novel writing, such as evaluating concepts, avoiding common pitfalls, and analyzing successful novels comparable to our own. Participants will have the opportunity to workshop two or more chapters of their work in progress. Near the class’s conclusion, writers will meet with Kristie again to revisit their goals and plan to sustain momentum going forward.

This class is a good fit for novelists with a partial or full draft as well as those starting out, if writers will be able to complete a couple chapters during the eight weeks.

Kristie Smeltzer’s fiction has been published by Scribes*MICRO*Fiction, MonkeyBicycle, Atticus Review, pioneertown, and others. She is currently working on several novels.
