Writing a novel takes discipline, but it can be the most transformative and rewarding work of your life. In this four-week workshop, award-winning author Sarah Mian breaks the process down into manageable steps, offering a practical guide that will steer your story onto a clear and focused path. Along the way, she’ll debunk myths about the writing life, share wisdom from her own journey, and offer valuable tips for getting published.
