Inhalt: Do you have big ideas but little time? Then take the time to attend this weekly creative writing seminar to develop your idea for a novel or continue working on one you've already begun. Using examples and excerpts from a variety of genres, we will examine topics such as - but not limited to - authentic character creation and development, style and structure, plots and settings, narration experimentation, dialogue crafting as well as techniques for engaging your readers. Of course, you will have the opportunity to take part in a wide-range of creativity, writing, and editing exercises to polish the chapters that we will discuss in responsive workshops as well as individual appointments. At the end of the semester, you can submit your revised chapters for final assessment. Note: After the initial introductory sessions, the seminar will be divided into to two parts: a group meeting during the first half of the seminar for readings and discussions as well as writing exercises, responsive workshops and/or individual appointments during the second half.
