Redbud Workshop: Writing the Novel

This is a craft and workshop hybrid class for students who are interested in learning more about writing novels. Discussions will include short story pacing versus novel pacing; identifying whether an idea is better suited for a novel or a short story; coming up with ideas for novels; the essential elements of a novel; outlining novels; and more. We will read and discuss two short novels in this course, and by the end of the course, all students will have written, workshopped, and polished a first chapter of a novel, and will leave the course with a roadmap for how to complete their book.

Instructor: Emily Cataneo
Level: Beginner and above
Cost: $349 for new students; $319 for returning students

Note: First September class will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 6.


Note: the Redbud Writing Project offers sliding scale pricing. At check-out, you will be given the option of choosing a donor price. If you choose one of these prices, the extra $25, $50, or $100 will go towards scholarships for students who would not be able to afford our classes otherwise. Thank you in advance for considering making a contribution to inclusivity and access!

Per CDC guidelines, students will be asked to wear masks during class. We are also requiring all students who attend in-person classes to be vaccinated. Thank you in advance for understanding!
