Meeting occurred from 1 - 4 p.m. at El Segundo Public Library. Hosted by Nutschell Anne Windsor.

Want to know how to write a novel? Well, here’s your chance. CBW-LA Founder and President Nutschell Anne Windsor will lead you through a 3 Hour Workshop which will teach you the basics of novel writing.

You’ll learn about genre, word countand the various Elements of Fiction (theme, dialogue, etc). Most importantly, you’ll learn how to develop great characters, create exciting settings and plot your novel.

This Novel Writing Bootcamp will be particularly helpful if:

1.       You have an idea for a book but you have no idea how to even begin writing it.

2.       You are in the middle of writing your first draft and you’re not sure how your story should end or if your story arc is working.

3.       You are about to rewrite/revise your manuscript and you’re having trouble figuring out how to fix certain plot lines.

There will be tons of handouts, worksheets, recommended books and helpful links to help you out!

    I thoroughly enjoyed Anne's presentation. She was as organized, meticulous, and interesting as always. The seminar had a great deal of insightful information for a writer that wants to publish a novel. There was a lot of practical tidbits scattered all through her talk. I have heard many other lectures and I was not surprised at the professionalism and real life aspects of writing that were discussed. It made me want to write again. I would always recommend CBW-LA's workshops to anyone.

    This was an excellent review of the elements of literature, filled with great tips for developing plot and character. The session really helped me to understand how I might improve my novel. I'm grateful to Nutschell for her thoroughness in developing the lecture and handouts. I know I will be referring to them again.

    I enjoyed this workshop! It was both inspiring and educational. Nutschell is a great instructor! I like how she emphasizes that there is no "correct" way to write. We all have to find what works best for us. Thanks for another uplifting workshop!

    Awesome workshop. Nutschell is always inspiring to my writing self. But what's more is she managed to review about three UCLA courses worth of information in a three hour session. This was just the shot in the arm I needed as I begin another novel. And finally, I love how Nutschell always emphasizes that every writer is different and that we just have to find the techniques which work for us. Go Nutschell!
