Sandra will discuss plot/ character development in an interactive workshop covering:
Aristotle's three act plot structure & how it applies to screenplay (Syd Field), novel, & short story writing.

If we have time, we will work through guided plot exercise. You may go home with the skeleton of your next DYNAMIC short story!
