About The Event
Having a fantastic idea for a story is one thing, knowing how best to structure that story is quite another! In this workshop we'll examine the variety of ways to write an exceptionally compelling plot, one that'll hold a reader's attention, keeping them glued to their seats, desperate to know how it ends. Then we'll look specifically at beginnings - the all-important question of "What? Who? Why? What next? Where/When?" - and how you can craft that perfect opening line. Finally, we'll address the other essential component of great stories: creating truly captivating characters to populate that compelling plot!
