Writing Workshop: How Conflict Makes Stories Work

  • Date January 12, 2017
  • Time 10:00a.m. - 4:00p.m.
  • Suitable for Adults

Join us for a writing workshop with tutors from Creative Words Matter. This workshop takes a close look at how the structure of a story affects how the plot is revealed.

The workshop will consider all the different types of conflict a writer might use, in story structure, character interaction and dialogue to keep the story moving along and the reader gripped. We’ll look at the best places to begin; how to build to the climax and how the ending relates to the beginning so that the story feels complete and satisfying.

The day begins at 10.00am and lasts until 4.00pm. Refreshments will be available in the morning and afternoon but please provide your own lunch.
