About this course:
Learn how to adapt classic literature to craft your own contemporary novel and boldly step into the fastest-growing genre in publishing. We explore how to put your spin on plot, theme, character, setting, and point-of-view and how to breathe life into your creation. With in-class writing exercises, you have a chance to flex your writing muscles and receive feedback on a high-level concept. You leave with an idea (or several) as well as a rough outline and synopsis for your novel.
