About: Using examples from Jane Austen’s novels, we will examine what makes her writing the masterpiece it is. Expect to read or review Austen’s works and several blogs and articles at the start of the course and then to work on assignments that focus on pinpointing the specific writing techniques she used in crafting her heroines, heroes, and villains. However, you do not need to writing Regency romance to benefit from this course. Austen’s techniques are universal and found in every well-written novel.
