    Over the course of four weeks we will look at building a solid narrative arc, from a conflict-driven beginning, to a pacy middle, and finally to a conclusion which will leave the reader satisfied and begging for the next book.

    The course will involve lessons, practical exercises, as well as group feedback. Participants will be encouraged to share their story ideas in a safe and supportive environment.
    Week 1: Introduction, Understanding Conflict and GMC
    Week 2: Setting up the story arcs in the beginning of your novel, inciting incidents and the first turning point
    Week 3: Increasing the conflict, obstacles and setbacks, turning points
    Week 4: The climax, black moment and resolution of the novel, tying up the conflicts and character arcs
