SummaryGet started – or recharge – and keep going on your novel! Novelist Susan Meyers helps you get focused and committed to your idea or work in progress.
DescriptionYou’ve got a great idea for a novel, but how do you get started? National Novel Writing Month is coming up—and this is the class to get you going! Come spend an afternoon learning how to plan your project, capture your readers’ interest, and get yourself launched! We’ll look at key craft elements from premise statements to inciting incidents and engage in writing exercises to help get you started on your own project.

Susan V. Meyers is an award-winning novelist who teaches at Hugo House and directs the Creative Writing Program at Seattle University.
