This stand alone class covers all the basic aspects of story and applies to both short stories and novels. We’ll discuss spicing up your story with the “Three Cs”: The Clock, The Crucible, and The Contract.
We’ll learn how to determine where the story starts, when to enter the complication, we’ll talk about the need for rising action, what happens in the climax and what defines the story’s resolution.
A number of in-class exercises and a series of handouts will be provided.
