Look at how plot interacts with character and the role of subplots in your story. Bring in a work-in-progress to share and workshop, so you can leave the weekend course with tangible progress on your novel.   

You will learn

  • how to structure individual chapters and scenes
  • how to make sure that the plot stems honestly from the characters, rather than forcing your characters to act unrealistically to forward the story
  • how to work twists into your story without them coming off as contrived, and avoiding cliché in your plot
  • the function and characteristics of a compelling subplot
  • how to ensure that your plot remains believable, no matter what type of novel you are writing

This workshop is Auslan interpreted.

Eli shared his thoughts with us in a Q&A. You can read it on this website.

Please note that this workshop was initially advertised for a different date. The information on this page is correct.
