Novel Writing with Patti Gauch 2019

About This Event

Overview

Move your novel to the next level with guidance from editor Patricia Lee Gauch.

In this six-day workshop, you’ll have the chance to dig into the first draft of your novel, looking to confirm characters and voices, elevate diction, celebrate ecstatic moments, and shape story structure. You’ll bring that draft to a new, spirited, and unexpected level.

Please note: Application deadline is February 1, 2019.
