“How to write a novel” masterclass, by João Tordo (part I)

From Aristotle to Saramago, from Woolf to Atwood, the great writers of fiction and thinkers of narrative have regarded fiction as a craft. What is a narrative, after all? How is it built, how is it structured, and what are its foundations? Why do we need stories, and how do they seduce us? What can we learn? How can we combine art and technique? In this Masterclass at Utopia, João Tordo explores narrative from the perspective of the writer – the emotional perspective, using examples from his readings and books, and building upon the premise of his in-person classes: “Read like a writer and write like a reader”.
