Learn how to give your stories pace and structure in our online course
Read the course outline (pdf)
Lives might not have plots, but life-stories do. Plot means structure, energy, drive: plot is what makes the reader turn the page and ask ‘so what happened next?’ Plots can be vast and complex as in a John le Carre novel, or as small and contained as in a fairy tale or nursery rhyme. This online course will introduce you to the seven basic plots and show you how to turn your own experiences into a gripping narrative.
This course takes place on Zoom and we will email you a joining link the day before. There will be an opportunity to ask tutor, Frances Wilson, questions during a Q&A and have conversations with your fellow participants in the virtual breakout rooms.
Live captions will be provided by Stagetext.
