The Great American Novel

Recommended grade levels - 9th through 12th

Teacher:                    Lilli Witczak
Time:                         Wednesdays 10:00 - 11:15 a.m.
Date:                          6 weeks in a row starting June 1.

The goal of this class is for each student to write a 50,000 word novel in 4 weeks.  Yup, that’s a lot of writing.  What
better time to take on such a monumental challenge than summer. Think about it. When your student is asked, “So,
what did you do this summer?”  He/she will be able to reply, “Oh nothing much. I just wrote a novel.”

The first week of the class will be a warm up and pre-writing meeting to strategize and prepare for the task. Then the
race begins.  While the novel is being written over four weeks, the class will critique excerpts from fellow students’
books, listen to and make suggestions, and learn a few rhetorical tools.  The last class meeting is to strategize and
celebrate.

Book Required:
 No Plot? No Problem! Revised and Expanded Edition: A Low-stress, High-velocity Guide to Writing
a Novel in 30 Days by Chris Baty.  
ISBN-13: 978-1452124773

Fees:
                        $90 for the six week class.
