Group Description

Note: Though this class is offered as part of the Novel Writing Certificate Program, there is no pre-requisite to join this class. All students, members, and nonmembers are encouraged to enroll.


Plotting the Novel: While your characters are the beating heart of your novel, your plot is its bones.


Whether you are an outliner or someone who works on the fly, this basic architecture (the novel’s skeleton, so to speak) cannot be neglected.


In this six-week workshop, we will work on understanding the essential plot requirements of a good story, and work on building a good strong supporting structure for your novel.
