Start Your Novel

The goal of this workshop is simple--getting you going on a novel that keeps going. Starting, some say, is the easy part. But starting a novel that you'll actually finish is a whole other kettle of fish, one that retains an air of mystery even to well-published veterans of the art. We'll try to peer into that mystery in this two day course, examining a number of particularly successful novel openings, both past and present, as well as discussing strategies for getting oneself started (sometimes starting *is* the hard part!), and then working on a number of exercises. Hopefully, by the end, students will have the opening of their first novel.

This workshop will be in person on the OSU-Tulsa campus on Saturday, January 28, 2023 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m.

Instructor: Nathan Knapp

Instructor Bio: Nathan Knapp's writing has appeared in 3:AM, The Times Literary Supplement, The Point, Music & Literature, The Rupture, and elsewhere.

Registration will close at noon on Friday, January 27, 2023.
