Prepare your novel just in time for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) with this novel plotting class on Monday, October 21 at 5:30pm! Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, this fast-paced plotting mashup gives you more than a mere outline. Using Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, 3-act structure, and a screen-writing card trick, participants will learn how structure works as the framework of their story, and receive tools to plan out their novel ahead of time or guide their story discovery as they go.
