Iowa Writers' House Workshop: the Craft of Fiction

Every story of every length has four main ingredients: beginning, middle, end and transformation. For longer works of fiction, especially novels, more ingredients are added to the recipe, including: momentum and pacing, sustaining tension, character development, and emotional complexity. In this workshop, award-winning fiction writer Calla Devlin will explore how to tackle that big idea and what it takes to finish a novel-length work, from outlining a first draft to putting the finishing touches on a manuscript ready for submission.
