Section 2: Tuesday and Thursday 3:30-4:45 PM
Professor: Cathy Day
This is a novel-writing class, and thus, it will be very different from most of the creative writing classes you’ve taken previously. It’s a “writeshop,” not a workshop. Our concern is on the quantity of your writing, not the quality. We focus on your process, not the product. My hope is that this course will make you feel like a “real writer,” and that you’ll remember what you learned about maintaining a writing life long after the course is over. By the end of the semester, you’ll have drafted many, many pages of a brand new novel-in-progress. Of the many words you produce, 10 will be revised and turned in as your final, along with an accompanying query letter to a faux literary agent.
