The art and craft of the erotic novella will be explored with the help of multi-published author Kimberly Gardner. The class will center around the seven step plotting template Kimberly has developed and used to write and publish seven erotic novellas. Examples will be given from Kimberly's own work and students will be encouraged to bring their own projects into the discussion. The class will include assignments and discussion with feedback provided as time permits. Topics include: * The structure of the novella and how it differs from other forms. * The seven step plotting template; the scenes you need and why you need them. * Keeping it focused, keeping it clear; How to know what to keep and what to toss. * Sex in the novella; How soon, how much and how to pull it off. * Killing your darlings; how to pare down your manuscript to meet word counts without short changing the reader.
