A novel is a world into which a reader disappears for hours at a time, becoming immersed in another world through time and space, awash in a vast array of emotions and human psychology. It’s a world where the reader either becomes one of the characters or identifies with the character and completely loses oneself. The characters become glamorous, or addictive: a gambler living the high-life, an explorer searching for treasure, a mixed-up teenager falling into a life of drugs and living on the edge, a housewife determined to make a life for herself who sneaks off while the kids are in school, a sociopathic nutjob who lives with his mother while tricking young women…
If you’re up for the challenge, we’ll show you how to write a novel to remember and character’s that are hard to forget.
Writing a novel is exciting but it can be laborious at times. It’s a steep climb over hundreds of pages and the work as a whole must be unified, entertaining, and mind-engrossing with a captivating start and a climactic end. Here you will learn the specialized techniques of novel writing and how to market your work.

Hello fellow writers,
Creative writing classes are not just about learning ways to get our ideas and stories on paper or computer, they are also instrumental in establishing a link to a community of writers.
Writers spend a lot of time alone. The best way to grow as a writer and not fall victim to blocks and isolation, as well as to build a support group, is to seek out others in the writing and creative arts community. We are a family of creative artists and we thrive in the synergistic environment of our peers.
I hope you will sign up for one of our creative writing courses and join our family. We look forward to meeting you!
