07/20 Plotting the Novel with T. Greenwood
So you have a terrific idea, but you don’t know how to turn this premise into a plot. In this one-day workshop, aimed at all levels of writers, we will discuss how to both devise and implement your novel’s narrative structure. We will primarily focus on the three-act structure, but we will also look at non-linear narratives and novels in linked stories. Exercises will be aimed at determining the larger arc of your story. Bring your notebooks (or laptops) and ideas!
