May 17 – The Art of Novella Writing with Caroline Linden

We all love novels, rich with complex characters and plot twists. But novels take a long time to write, and–let’s face it–not all the stories in our heads are 400 pages long. With the advent of digital publishing and the ease of self-publishing, there has never been a better time to write novellas and short stories. Even better, they can be fun to write!

Caroline Linden was born a reader, not a writer. She earned a math degree from Harvard University and wrote computer code before discovering that writing fiction was far more fun. Eleven years, fifteen books, three Red Sox championships, and one dog later, she has never been happier with her decision. Her books have won the NEC-RWA Reader’s Choice Beanpot Award, the Daphne du Maurier Award, NJRW’s Golden Leaf award, and RWA’s RITA Award.
