Finding the Structure of Our Stories with Jai Chakrabarti (via Zoom)


Saturday, July 23, 2022
12:30 pm - 2:30 pm


Structure is the skeleton that holds our stories together, but how do we think about it for our own work? We’ll start with analyzing the classic “Freytag’s Triangle” in fiction and then depart from there into stories that pursue less traditional structures. Finally, we’ll think about tools that allow us to visualize and map out story structure so that we can revise with more confidence.

NB: This craft class will be held on Zoom. It will be capped at 20 students. Scholarship information will be available In April and will be due on May 15th. Please read the course policies page before signing up for any of our workshops.
