Student Quotes
"The instructor was able to provide constructive and well-meant criticism no matter what the author's style and approach."
- Noah Walley

"I learned more in this course than I could possibly write here. The instructor was amazing online. The best I've ever had and I have taken 7 online courses at various places. My understanding of the issues related to writing a novel is light years ahead of where it was prior to the class."
- Barbara Seith

"Enlightening...a truly life-enriching experience. I can't praise the teacher enough. He opened my eyes to aspects of novel writing that would never have occurred to me if I hadn't enrolled in the course. I consider it a privilege to have been a member of his class."

Novel
everest1

A novel is a world into which a reader disappears for hours or days at a time, navigating through time and space and human psychology. We live with the characters, be they a glamorous bootlegger living the high life, or a mixed-up teenager on hiatus from prep school, or a neurotic woman trying to lose weight and land a man.
 
Writing a novel is a long haul—a steep climb over hundreds of pages that must work as a unified and engrossing whole. Here you will learn the specialized techniques of novel writing and how to market your work.
 
If you’re up for the challenge, we’ll show you how to write a novel to remember.

Notes:

Fiction I encompasses short stories and novels. After Level I, students have a choice of Fiction II/III (focusing on short stories), or Novel II/III (focusing on novels).
 
If you are working on “genre” fiction, you may take either a Fiction/Novel course or one of our genre courses: Science Fiction & Fantasy, Romance, Mystery.
 
If you are working on a YA novel, you may take a Fiction/Novel or “genre” course, or you may take a Children’s Book course, where the full spectrum of children’s books will be covered.
