Vancouver: Plot This! How to Use Story Structure to Write Your Story with Daryll Lynne Evans

March 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Plot This! How to Use Story Structure to Write Your Story

People, like novels, come in every shape and size, yet no two are exactly alike. But peel back the cover—the skin—and you’ll find that everyone has a remarkably similar skeleton that gives us our shape and structure. Novels (and memoir and short stories!), whatever the genre, also share a skeletal framework called story structure. In this workshop, we’ll examine the elements of three-act structure and the Hero’s Journey, both in terms of structuring your story during the creation process, and how to use these “bones” of story structure as tools in the revision process.
