In this discussion and workshopping session, attendees will receive hands-on guidance in how to plan, write, sell, and market their first novels. The session will be led by Ladee Hubbard, 2018 LitSpace St. Pete Writer in Residence, whose widely lauded first novel was published in 2017. Hubbard will lead in-class exercises to help participants refine their own developing novels, with a particular focus on story. Hubbard will also share her experience writing "The Talented Ribkins," offer practical advice about publishing, and discuss elements of craft specific to the novel.|
