Are you halfway into writing a novel and feeling stuck? Do you have a draft of a novel but are unsure what to do next? Are you an experienced writer looking for feedback on your new project?
In this eight-week revision class, writers will work with author Lauren Nossett on the most important part of writing: rewriting. We'll discuss getting to the core of our novels, world building, knowing our characters, killing our darlings, strong beginnings, and satisfying endings, all while giving and receiving feedback on our works in progress. Writers will leave this workshop with a revised first chapter, revision techniques, and tools to finish their revision.
Lauren Nossett’s debut novel, The Resemblance (Flatiron Books) was listed as a 2023 Books All Georgians Should Read, nominated as a Best First Book by International Thriller Writers, and called “elegant and thoughtful” by The New York Times. Her second novel, The Professor, will be published in November 2023. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee, where she has recently begun hosting a weekly vegan supper club in an effort to improve her cooking skills.
Lauren is new to The Porch. Welcome!
