Layered Plot Techniques
We all want to tell a compelling story. We all want our books to be un-put-downable.
When we study a number of plotting techniques, we discover they’re all similar, and different enough to seem discordant. It is possible to make that discord work for us. This class will show how to create a synthesis of techniques that will translate into strategies we can use to make our stories richer, deeper, stronger.
Layering Plot Techniques focuses on synthesis and assimilation, starting with three of the instructor’s favorite plot techniques/structures: Christopher Vogler’s Hero’s Journey, Michael Hauge’s six-stage structure and the W diagram.
At the end of the class, you’ll have a deeper understanding of plot than any of the techniques could give you alone.
