Class Blurb:


Before the book, before a writer types a word on a page, there is an idea. And behind that idea are the characters, the background, the location.

Research is an important aspect of any story. Whether the writer prepares their background information before they begin to write the story, or if they make it up as they go, they will need to get to know the people they are creating.

Behind the Scenes: The Research Before the Book is a class which will help writers learn the basics for researching their novels. Whether they are using the public library, stacking their own shelves or meeting with a professional in their character's profession, this class will give the writer the insiders look at how to do the research and then pull it all together.
