Creative Writing Workshop - Caroline Lea on Plotting Your Story Warwick University creative writing lecturer guides writers through the challenges of creating compelling plot and structure
This very hands on workshop wth the novelist and Warwick University Creative Writing Tutor, Caroline Lea, takes a practical and playful approach to building a narrative. In the session, you will experiment with the elements of traditional structure and ways of deviating from this, while still giving the reader a gripping and tightly-structured story. You'll write a great beginning, plan a satisfying ending and discuss the problem of a stodgy middle. You'll also start to develop complex characters to propel your narrative. Lastly, you'll talk about the dreaded twist: why, when (and when not) to use it. Coffee/tea on arrival included.
