Join YA Fantasy author Darci Cole to learn and discuss the basics of writing a novel. From brainstorming to outlining, and character to plot, this class will cover everything a new writer needs to get started and reach their first "The End." 

Registration to the course includes access to six online classes as well as either a 1,000-word critique from Darci, or a 30-minute zoom call to discuss whatever you'd like. 

Classes will be held live over Zoom on March 2, 9, 16, 23, 30, and April 6 of 2023, from 7PM to 8:30 PM MST. Sixty minutes of instruction will be followed by thirty minutes of Q&A.

Every class will be recorded and saved in a Google drive, and access to these classes will remain open to students until the end of July, 2023.
