Troubleshoot Your Novel

Stuck as a pig in a poke? Unstick thyself and fix your dang book.

No matter what stage you're at, writing a novel can often be an exercise in frustration... But you're not alone. ALL of us suffer from sticking points, plot issues and existential literary problems. And it can be really hard to stay objective and figure out how to fix things. Maybe you know exactly what's wrong but have no idea how to make it better. Or maybe you know something's wrong but you can't quite put your finger on it... 

In this course, you'll find out how to identify what's causing your novel issues, make a plan of action, and utilise a whole bunch of ideas and tips to sort it all out.

Whether you're just starting out, half way through the first draft, or well into your twelfth version of your novel, we'll help you figure out a fix and get back on that writing horse.

About the instructor

Jo is a human who procrastinates about writing by writing about writing. Her novel White Lies won the Luke Bitmead Bursary and was published by Legend Press in 2014. She’s also had a bunch of short fiction published, nabbed an Arts Council grant to write the (shitty) first draft of her next novel, is attempting a screenplay adaptation of the first book, and just finished an MA in Shakespeare because she’s a literary badass/masochist. Jo also runs the monthly Brighton Writers’ Retreat.
