Story Structure Based on Theme: Making Your Readers Believers

Saturday, August 4, 2018
9:00 am - 10:30 am
St. Helen’s C

“In this class we’ll explore how to structure your story based on the theme you want to prove to your readers. By starting with thematic content, I’ll walk you through the process of building multiple story lines and character arcs that all serve to prove your theme. This process works for everything from short stories to novels to films.”
