Plot: It’s Not a Four-Letter Word [Michael Shilling]

All Levels | As fiction writers, we love the symmetry of a great sentence, the power of place and setting, the human heart in conflict with itself. We also love plot — but sometimes we forget every story needs one. In this course, we’ll examine how to build plots that grow organically out of a character’s desires and contexts. While this is a class focused around your work, we’ll also examine published work that combines interior depth and exterior circumstance to thrilling effect.
