Plot and Structure with Kathryn Para, MFA
Shortlisted: Ethel Wilson Fiction
Winner: Great BC Novel Contest
Whether you’re writing short or long, literary or genre fiction, for the stage, screen or web, your story needs a plot. We will discuss how to develop your character’s needs and desires into internal and external plots and use specific writing tools to focus your plot threads and embed your theme. Then we’ll explore causality and how it drives the plot and brings your story to a satisfying end.
