Plot cannot stand alone. Plot is the organizing force that makes our stories progress and insists that something happen. In good fiction, it is also essential to support plot with other elements of craft such as character, theme, suspense and conflict. Participants will learn to avoid formulaic plots and understand how characters drive an organic narrative from beginning to end.
In-class exercises and reading examples from short stories, novels and film will illustrate ways to identify the strengths and weaknesses of your story's development and direction.
