Story Structure 101

A half-day online masterclass focusing on story structure

Saturday 12th Feb 2021 10am-2pm

In this creative writing workshop, we'll examine traditional story structures, including the hero's journey and three act structure. You'll be given space to explore how to apply these to your own work. You'll find out how to enjoy plotting, playing with structure and how to use it to build tension, to engage, surprise and delight your readers.

This day is ideal if you:

  • are totally terrified of plotting.
  • want to get to grips with the shape of your stories.
  • are keen to work on fiction or memoir.
  • want to understand how you can use narrative structure as a supportive tool.
  • are excited about getting new (or old!) stories plotted and ready to write.

There will be time for writing built into the day, as well as opportunities to collaborate, share and enjoy new each other's work.

Writers at all stages of their journey are welcome. Suitable for new writers as well as those with novels to their names.

Booking essential.

The workshop inspired fresh ideas and helped me to see my story from a new perspective. I now have lots of editing to do, with a renewed sense of confidence about how to begin. Ali brings a wonderful energy and enthusiasm to the session. (Madelaine)

A great overview of story structures and plotting that can dig you out of trouble or put you on a clear route map (David)

The Story Structure 101 course has catapulted my motivation. Before the course, I didn't know how to structure my novel. Now I've a much clearer idea about what works and feel more confident about where to start. (Valerie)

FAQ

Is it an actual club? Like, do I get a badge? Not really. Though there is a community of WriteClubbers who regularly come to workshops both online and in real life. WriteClub offers workshops to help you get words down on the page, to help you deal with procrastination and to get feedback on your work.

What if I haven't written anything before? Well, that's probably not true - we've all written stuff at some point. Basically we're here to create a space for you to get words out. It doesn't matter where you are with your writing. Perhaps you're half way through a second novel. Perhaps you haven't written more than a shopping list in years. Wherever you're at, we'll have a session to suit you.

I really want to work one-to-one rather than in a group. Can I do that? Sure. Pop us an email at hellowriteclub@gmail.com and we'll arrange a time to chat about our mentoring packages.

Who leads the sessions? Workshops are mostly led by WriteClubber-in-chief, Alison Powell. She's been running writing workshops forever (seriously, she even used to get her primary school friends writing stories...) and established WriteClub in 2016. She supports new and established writers and runs regular workshops on all aspects of the writing craft. She is an award winning writer, published in various anthologies and magazines and holds an MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa.

She has years of experience as a secondary English & Drama teacher and is also a fully fledged INLPTA certified Master Practitioner of NLP and coaching. She is an active member of NAWE and a channel partner with Paper Nations.

She believes that everyone has the right to express themselves in writing and runs all her sessions with a positive approach and a genuine passion for helping people set their words free. Her love of poetry and story, along with her enthusiasm for helping people find the best in themselves are reflected in her lively, welcoming and open presentation style. She promises to do her very best to ensure you find the support you need to make your writing feel wonderful.
