Get Some Backbone: Plotting Essentials- a Master Class in Writing Craft

March 5, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$39

Erik Eastman

 

What is plot? What is story? What makes us keep reading and what makes us lose interest? All stories travel forward in an arc to deliver the characters (and the reader) from one state to another. When the writer does this well, we don’t even notice. We’re magically gripped in the events and conflicts of the characters.

Join writer Marcia Walker for this two-hour master class in craft as she discusses the hidden layers of plot and the many ways a to build events in your story to excite, innovate, and inform. We’ll discuss causality, metafiction, character-based plotting and the benefits and pitfalls of outlining.
