Plot is more than a series of events. It is an ordering of all the elements of fiction to produce a unified effect. In this workshop we will examine some of these elements (character, conflict, theme) and see how they combine to create plot. We will review different types of plots and diagnose common plotting problems. Come prepared to imagine new story lines and reimagine old ones.
This workshop is useful for both short-fiction writers and novelists. It is led by Caroline Adderson, a fiction writer and teacher.
