Event description

Description

Plot and Structure work hand in hand to engage readers with your story. You must first discover what your story is about, and then determine the best way to tell it. Or can you decide how to tell it first? In this workshop, we will explore what works, what doesn’t and why.

Together we will create a simple plot, and explore it in relation to three or four different structures to find out which structure may suit which kind of plot or genre.
