ABOUT THE CLASS:
Plotting is never easy, even for the seasoned writer. How do you keep everything straight and go in the right direction? While this class is aimed at the beginning writer, any level writer can benefit from this overview of various plotting systems. It provides explanations of ways to plot and goes into detail on how authors who write by the seat of their pants can use those ways to make their own plotting—or lack of it—easier.

To give you some idea of how the class will be conducted, here is a brief outline of the subjects we will be discussing in depth during the coming weeks. We’ll be including assignments to go with the various lectures, and discussing the assignments with the class members. We’ll also leave plenty of time for students to ask questions at any time.
