May 14th – Online workshop: Plot and Character – A Symbiotic Mix

Due to the ongoing lockdown caused by the Coronavirus pandemic we are unable to meet in person. However, local writer and CW member Sandra Smith will be running the event below, which will be open to members only:

Some writers are driven by plot. For others, characters are the starting point around which the storyline evolves. Whatever works for you, both plot and character are intrinsically linked because no short story or novel will fully engage a reader unless the action and protagonists support and reflect each other. Plot and Character – A Symbiotic Mix is a workshop in the form of a worksheet, an hour long session including guidance notes, writing exercises, examples and explanations. I will also be available (via email) to answer questions and respond to feedback from 8pm on Thursday, May 14, and over the following few days.

Sandra’s website can be found at:
