PLOT SEMINAR: Analyze the plot structure of three well-known novels and learn the classic three-act-structure, the timing of subplots and plot reversals, how a plot is constructed from the characters, and what to do when you discover in the middle that your plot must change. We also compare the suspense that carries readers from one scene to the next with the long-term narrative tension of each character’s story arc. Be prepared to take notes.


Duration: One afternoon, three-and-a-half hours


Write to workshop (at) keithbooks (plus the usual dot com) with the subject line “Plot” for more information.
