Class Description


Structuring a story can seem like an unwieldy exercise. Even though the story happened to you, deciding which events and details to include can feel like trying to tame the ocean. This four-week class explores the role Plot and Structure play in building stories. Students will use written, verbal, and craft/comic book exercises to learn how plot and structure can enrich the tales they want to tell. Pre-Req: Storytelling Level One or Improv Level Two would be helpful.
