Registration has started for an all-day class for writers led by James Thayer, the author of 13 critically acclaimed novels and a writers’ manual.

The Nov. 17 class will focus on scene structure.

“Scene Structure: How to Build a Novel One Plank at a Time” is set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Bainbridge Public Library.

The class has room for a maximum of 24 students, and the course will review techniques for creating scenes, including how to start one and how to end it, the essential pattern of almost all scenes, ways to obtain maximum effect from scenes, and how to avoid prospect-killing mistakes.

Thayer is a fiction-writing instructor at the University of Washington extension program and the author of “The Essential Guide to Writing a Novel.”

Tuition for the class is $100; register at www.fieldsend.org.

Field’s End, an affiliate of the Bainbridge Library, offers workshops, classes and an annual conference focusing on the art, craft and profession of writing.
