      Jump-Start Your Novel: One-Day Intensive With Heather Newton

      This intensive one-day workshop is for writers with a novel in progress or an idea for a novel who want guidance and inspiration to get it written. In-class exercises will help you focus on what your novel is about, who it is about, how best to tell the story, and how to stay motivated and organized as it grows. Students who register for the workshop will have the option of purchasing an individual coaching session to take place during the summer, in which the instructor will read and critique up to 25 pages of your novel and meet with you for a 30-minute session to discuss it. Class meets Saturday, June 2, 2018, from 10am to 3pm with a one-hour lunch break during which students are invited to bring a bag lunch and discuss their novels informally with the group. Individual coaching sessions may be scheduled between June 2 and August 31, 2018. To register with a check instead of through Eventbrite, mail your check and contact information including email address to the Flatiron Writers Room, 5 Covington Street, Asheville, NC  28806. You will be registered when we receive your check, space permitting. Heather Newton’s novel Under The Mercy Trees (HarperCollins 2011) won the Thomas Wolfe Memorial Literary Award, was chosen by the Women’s National Book Association as a Great Group Reads Selection and named an “Okra Pick” by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance. Her short fiction and nonfiction have appeared in The Drum, Carolina Table, 27 Views of Asheville, and elsewhere. She teaches creative writing for UNC-Asheville’s Great Smokies Writing Program and is Program Manager for the Flatiron Writers Room. What is the Refund Policy? Students may request a refund for workshop tickets through Eventbrite up to 7 days before the June 2, 2018, workshop. After that no refunds will be given. Students may request a refund for individual coaching tickets through Eventbrite at any time before they submit their pages to the instructor for critique. Once they have submitted pages for critique, no refunds will be given.
