8 Week: Writing Women's Fiction


Women read everything, but for lack of a better term, agents and editors call books about relationships between mothers, daughters, sisters, lovers, and friends “Women’s Fiction.” Want to be the next Jodi Picoult, Terry McMillan, Jennifer Weiner, or Marisa de los Santos? Whether you have a first draft, a completed manuscript, or just an idea for a novel of the heart, this workshop is for you. Through in-class discussions, writing exercises, reading assignments, and workshopping parts of your manuscript, we’ll focus on the elements and storytelling techniques that make upmarket women’s fiction, chick-lit, romance and domestic novels really sing. Book clubs won't be able to get enough of them! Your instructor Carleen Brice is author of two best-selling women’s fiction novels, one of which, Orange Mint and Honey, was made into the Lifetime television movie Sins of the Mother.
