The greatest challenge to writing a first novel may be deciding where to start. This course will help you write an engaging first paragraph and a draft of at least the first chapter. You may also work on an outline. You will also learn how to use the elements of fiction--characterization, setting, dialogue, perspective, and plot--to set up your story. There will be some lecture, but basically this is a seminar course, focusing on read-and-critique sessions. All students are expected to participate in discussion.
