We welcome back Annabel Smith for this 'Who, What & Why? The Plotting Triangle' workshop.

This hands-on interactive workshop will equip participants with the tools for plotting a novel/la. It is suitable for people at any stage of a writing project and includes plenty of practise opportunities, as well as a framework which will empower participants to continue to build their expertise and confidence with plotting after the workshop.  
                • Understand the three sides of the plot ‘triangle’: who? what? and why?
                • Understand the elements of a scene & how scenes push the plot forward
                • Understand the relationship between character & plot
                • Create a plot outline for your story using a six-point story arc structure
