Writing Romance & Other Genre Novels

In this class you will learn to identify fiction genres typically used by bookstores, publishers and film makers to describe both books and film.  You will discover where the novel you want to write fits within the genres which include mainstream fiction, mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, westerns and more.  In addition to genre information, the class touches on the deep structure of commercial fiction which authors can use to create blueprints for their novels-in-progress.  The structures include archetype characters, the Hero’s Journey, the three-act structure as well as Save The Cat™ blockbuster film concepts that are also applicable to novels.


Please bring $10 for handouts.
