BPC opens Novel Writing Workshop to community learners

MOUNT VERNON –Brewton-Parker College’s Division of Arts & Sciences will offer a Novel Writing Workshop on the Mount Vernon campus this fall. This evening class, CRW/ENG 350, is geared to community members interested in learning the techniques of writing a novel.

The intermediate writing course may be taken for credit or non-credit, meaning it is open to community members interested in continuing their education. Cost for non-credit is $150.

“I taught a novel writing workshop several years ago, and we had a tremendous variety of students show up, from those who had not written a novel to some students who were already writing a long work. The subject matter and themes crossed a variety of boundaries, too – from serious to comic, experimental to experiential, from a first love plot to a baseball plot,” said Dr. Thom Brucie, assistant professor of English and creative writing at BPC. He will teach the Thursday night class from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in Room 138 inside the Miller Music Building.

The class will cover aspects of writing from characterization to scene development and writing practices as outlines, daily writing disciplines and overcoming writer’s block.
