This workshop is for students who want to develop the discipline and skills needed to write a novel. Exercises keep the class writing at a fast clip and are aimed at developing facility with elements of the novel, such as character, story, plot, dialogue, and meaning. Students encounter different possibilities of form, style, and subject matter through close readings of historical and contemporary novelists including Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, Jean Rhys, James Baldwin, Joan Didion, and Lynne Tillman. Students share their work with the class weekly, and the instructor provides written comments. The desire to write a novel is the only prerequisite.
