For stand-out fiction you need compelling characters coupled with a gripping storyline. But where do you begin? And how do the two fit together? In this fun and informative workshop, author and creative writing teacher Allie Spencer will introduce you to the idea of the Four Act Structure - a plotting device favoured by Hollywood screenwriters - and show how it combines with your protagonist's character arc to produce a fail-safe superstructure for your book. A must for anyone writing or planning a novel.
*** PLEASE NOT THE EARLIER START TIME FOR THIS EVENT***
