Plot Can Be Taught

Many writers find plot scary, or feel it has to be instinctive. This class is here to tell you that plot can be taught, that there are formulas and guidelines you can use to give your story the bones it needs to feel complete and satisfying to the reader. The first class will cover common plot types and ways of complicating them, the second class will be a workshop of plot outlines submitted by the class members. Everyone will leave this class with a useful plot outline for their project.
