Our final guest instructor to introduce is novelist Chris L. Terry! Chris, like Lisa Fetchko profiled last week, was also recommended by more than one of our faculty members, and we were happy to ask him to teach Novel I this term. Chris will also be teaching our first workshop in Leimert Park. If that central location works for you and you want to get started on your novel idea, Novel I with Chris L. Terry is the class for you!
Chris L. Terry’s debut novel Zero Fade was on Best of 2013 lists by Slate.com and Kirkus Reviews, who called it "original, hilarious, thought-provoking, and wicked smart...not to be missed." His novel Black Card, about a mixed-race punk musician with a black imaginary friend, is forthcoming from Catapult in 2019. Terry’s work has appeared in Best Small Fictions 2015, PANK, Very Smart Brothas, Apogee, Razorcake, and more.

Did you start writing a novel and hit a wall? Need help shaping and editing your latest draft? Want to write a novel but aren’t sure how to take the plunge? In this eight-week class, we’ll explore the art and craft of long-form narrative, diving deep into character, setting, structure, scene, point of view, and what it takes to write and rewrite your novel. We’ll read and discuss examples from masters of the form, and you’ll have ample opportunity to create, workshop, and revise material for the novel you’ve always wanted to write.
This class will take place in Leimert Park, where wine, sparkling water, and the occasional gourmet snack will be served.
