Vandamere Press is proud to have been selected as the exclusive trade and library distributor for QUODLIBETAL FEATURES' audio courses in writing. The courses are written and conducted by Ralph McInerny, author of over 60 published books including 49 novels- including the Father Dowling, Andrew Broom, and Monica Quill Mysteries. He is also the Michael P Grace Professor of Medieval Studies and Director of the Jacques. Maritain Center at the University of Notre Dame.
No magic is offered, only the unprecedented opportunity to work and learn techniques essential to becoming a writer from a regularly published author, not from a do-as-I-say-not-do as-l-do source. This year we are pleased to offer:
LET'S WRITE A NOVEL
ISBN 1-883222-01-X * 24 lessons * 12
tapes * Workbook * $89.00
In this course, Ralph McInerny teaches the listener how to write a novel in a series of 24 half-hour discussions. The tapes take the listener through the full creative process. As in all the Quodlibetal Features' courses, Let's Write a Novel relies on the "Come write along with me" method, where the listener works side-by-side with Ralph McInerny in a series of lectures, exercises, and projects as both create their own work.
Using The Prudence of the Flesh as the basis for discussion, the listener is instructed in the craft of writing including such areas as: the discipline of writing, the first chapter, what about a title, controlling the story, keeping a log, the vagaries of plot, wrapping it up, revisions, and much more. The final lesson deals with marketing your novel, agents, and the industry.
