Story Structure: How to Build a Story

Story Structure:
 

Good stories don't just happen, they're built. Like a blueprint, you need a sound structure to build an effective emotional journey for your readers. Through a combination of lecture, in-class exercise, homework, workshop and discussion, we'll explore both common and unconventional story shapes used in fiction. We'll also look at genre conventions, three-act structure, and the hero's journey to develop the tools you'll need to build emotionally satisfying stories again and again.
