Dr Laurie Steed says the plot of a story is the “sequence of events that affects other events through the principal of cause and effect.” This is a fairly simple concept to understand and most of you probably knew this already but you may also feel that writing a seamless and capturing plot is easier said than done. Plot is obviously very important in story writing because, well, the very definition of story, according to dictionary.com, is a “narration of the events in the life of a person or the existence of a thing, or such events as a subject for narration”. If you want to know the secrets of writing a well thought out and intriguing plot, Laurie will teach you how to skillfully manage the events that make up your plot in his “Writing Short Stories: Plot and Theme” workshop, taking place on Saturday, March 12th 2016. In this workshop, Dr Laurie Steed explains the basics of plot and theme, and how to work with each in pursuit of engaging, innovative, and exciting fiction. If this is what you’re looking for when it comes to writing your own short story or even your own novel then Laurie can help you.
Participants of all ages and levels are welcome, so don’t feel like you need to be an established writer or even a habitual writer to enjoy the benefits of this workshop. Plots may seem like they stroll into writer’s heads fully formed (maybe this has even happened to you), but there may always be room for strengthening and refining finer points and details in a story, even if its just for your own personal contentment.
