Plot Part Two: Plot in Action

August 2 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Instructor: Max Sheridan
$60 Members | $65 Nonmembers
Thursday, 8/2/18  | 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Just like good music in a movie, when plots are done right, you might not even notice them. In this second four-hour workshop, we’ll be looking at actual plots from stories that work and then taking them apart to see why. After that, we’ll see how the missing piece in this puzzle—character—interacts with plot to turn a concept into a relatable, gripping story. Participation in the first workshop isn’t mandatory, but the two do work as a useful progression. Participation in the first workshop isn’t mandatory, but the two do work as a useful progression. **Note: This session will include a 30-minute dinner break.
