Stories Are About Change – Structure

We read to understand how others encounter change, so we can better handle changes in our own lives. Story structure can help ensure your writing reflects this and resonates with readers.

In this workshop you will:

  • Discover how theme, conflict and character can all benefit from a structural review
  • Develop your own writing skills through hands-on exercises and discussion
  • Examine your purpose in writing stories and develop your understanding of why writers write
  • Create a story reflective of a specific idea and intention

Structure can help you plan, edit, and strengthen your writing. Come along to this workshop to discover how!

Please watch with either “Happy Feet”, “Star Wars IV: A New Hope” or “Frozen” in advance of this class.‘ 

This workshop is for writers at any stage of their writing journey
