Karen Alea Ford sent us the following email about a great writing workshop offered by the Writer’s Loft at Middle Tennessee State University. The workshop feautures Darnell Arnoult; I know her workshops often goes for the hundreds, so this is a great opportunity to learn from one of the best.

The text is Karen’s.

*Novel Workshop with Darnell Arnoult*
Drafting the Novel

What is the difference between the terms "story" and "novel"? Stories happen, novels are constructed. Novels are the architecture of what happened, revealing events and information to the reader in the most seductive and engaging way so as to keep the reader's interest from the
first page to the last.

In this workshop we will explore novel structure along with global and linear approaches to creating the story and the architecture.

*Cost*Free for Writer's Loft graduates and current students.
General Public-$20 CASH or CHECK (to MTSU) at event.

Date: Saturday, April 26th, 10-12

Address: Peck Hall, 3rd Floor, MTSU
