“Writing a Novel: Let’s Get Started” will detail and illustrate basic concepts to be considered as the writer begins to write. A guided brainstorming session will focus on understanding audience needs and wants; universally loved themes, conflicts and character types; developing compelling story and character arcs; scene placement; and the author’s message.
“The intent of this class is to help the writer create marketable art,” said Lorincz.
The workshop is designed for writers, 18 and older, considering or just beginning the process of writing a novel. Students younger than 18 must be approved by the instructor.
Interested writers can register by contacting Lorincz at firstname.lastname@example.org or 503-868-1139. Tuition for the class is $65 at the door, or $60 if paid in advance.
