Plot and structure.
We are going to discover why many beginning (and often advanced)
writers create fiction with no story. We will map out the key elements
of plot and structure, and what makes a story a story.

Description and detail
Our goal is to understand the true purpose of description and detail,
and why neither should be treated as fluff information strewn blindly
throughout the story.

Point of View and Dialogue
We are going to study the various viewpoints and learn tricks and tips
to make your story come alive. We are also going to delve into the
intricacies of solid dialogue.

Creating great characters
Then we are going to wrap it all up with the unifying element: character.
We will endeavor to find ways of turning the cardboard into well-rounded,
flesh and blood people.


To sign up, simply drop me an email (writingwithknost@yahoo.com) with
