Gina Ochsner will be offering an advanced class in writing the novel at Literary Arts in January:
Pushing the Plough: Moving a Novel Past Chapter One and Beyond
About the class: Writing a novel requires imagination, vision and stubbornness. At times the words rise from a secret well and we can’t write them down fast enough. At other times we may stare at a chapter segment or scene and think: what now? What next? Or, how in the world did my characters end up here?
This class is for writers who want to work on pieces of longer lengths: novellas and novels or short stories that could be expanded into a novel. The focus will be on deepening character, pushing characters into sustainable conflicts, special studies of points of view, linking imagery, voice , and the building of a life raft set of strategies for the inevitable “hit the wall” phenomenon that seems to befall even the most inspired of manuscripts.
