The Plot Thickens (And So Should the Subplot)

Westport Writers' Workshop

Zoom Seminar Workshop

Saturday, February 29

10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon

This immersive, online seminar-study defines and examines the use of plot and subplot in short and long fiction, with a focus on full-length upmarket and literary works. We’ll start with an overview of how plot and subplot function separately and together to propel and develop narrative and characters. We’ll also study the components of a thorough plot treatment, character studies, and backstory: its definition, use, and presentation. The seminar includes handouts and a Q&A segment at the end of the study.
