What is meant by ‘craft’ in writing novels?
Like any creative process, writing a novel involves tools and training. Some of the training you learned in school, such as how to compose an English sentence. That very fundamental tool involves nouns, verbs, and objects. Before graduating high school, everyone learns to compose simple paragraphs. Novel writing tools include those basics and a bit more.
This ‘crafting the novel’ series is for students who wonder what it would take to fulfill an idea they might already have in mind.
Join us for a few hours on Sunday afternoons this summer, as we dig into the details in this series of classes on Crafting the Novel. We will start by understanding ‘the scene’ and how it functions in story telling.
