Are you starting a novel or planning on drafting one during National Novel Writing Month? Find out what it takes to write a novel in 30 days in this class taught by Rebecca Agiewich. Registration is required.

Get a head start on your novel by discovering your characters, learning about dramatic story structure, and narrowing down what you actually want to write about. Plus, learn some tips and tricks for getting through this exhausting, exhilarating month. Come prepared to do some fun brainstorming and writing exercises in class. You don’t need to commit to NaNoWriMo.

Writers will get the most out of this class if they arrive having read Chris Baty’s “No Plot, No Problem.” Although it is not required, Rebecca Agiewich recommends this book for participation in the class and for NaNoWriMo. To prepare for your class, we ask that you bring a pen/pencil and paper, or a fully-charged laptop.

Instructor Rebecca Agiewich is a novelist, essayist, travel writer and writing teacher. Her novel “BreakupBabe” (Ballantine Books) was drafted during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), and she regularly teaches writing students at Richard Hugo House how to crank out a novel in five weeks.

Registration required. Online registration for this class opens on August 10 and closes on October 19 at 9 a.m. Class is limited to 30 patrons. After online registration closes, call the branch to sign up or make changes to existing registration. High Point Branch 206-684-7454.
