Whether you are working on a novel, short story, essay, or memoir, each work must tell a compelling story and maintain the energy of that story all the way through to the end. There are lots of ways to tell a story, but expert plotting is the best way to keep readers turning the pages. Plotting also helps with cohesion, resisting the mid-draft slump and can ultimately save time. This workshop examines the numerous ways structure is used to achieve cohesion and will help you find the most compelling way to tell your story. This workshop is for writers with just a germ of an idea or a whole complicated manuscript.
