8-Week: Contain Yourself—Focusing on Your Book’s Scope

You may be writing a novel, a memoir, or a nonfiction book—but in all three cases, you have to tackle the scope of your story. Where should it start? Where should it end? What should it include and exclude? Should it sprawl across time, geography, topics, and themes? Or would limiting your scope make your narrative stronger, not to mention more sellable? In this eight-week workshop, we'll explore various ways of containing your story through a combination of discussion, exercises, reading, and workshopping. The emphasis will be on publishing goals as well as craft. You don't need to have a book draft in progress (although that's fine too, of course); it's perfectly okay to come to class armed with a basic idea and the ambition to write a book.
