What is a Novel?

Duration: 2 - 3 hours

All novels are stories, but not all stories are novels. Humans have been telling stories since the dawn of time but the advent of the novel (as we know it) came much later in our development and is quite new when compared to the history of story-telling. With this course, you will learn novel characteristics, lengths and word counts, genres, audience, commercial novels, literary novels, creative writing and categories of children's writing.
