Power Plot Bootcamp

6 weeks
March 22 to May 3
Fees waived in light of current Covid-19 crisis
Donations welcome (usual fee $150)

Has the plot of a piece ever eluded you? Or do you have the first ten pages of a piece to polish for a submission? If so, Power Plot Bootcamp is for you!

Power Plot Bootcamp is designed for any genre- fiction, non-fiction, even the poets might like the contents of this course. The online course will examine the spine of any story through the lens of Blake Snyder’s Save the Cat– a book originally intended for screenplays but has many different applications. This class will be conducted using  a Facebook Group as well as a Canvas Classroom for those who want to go further. It will also include a weekly optional and recorded hour-long live session to workshop work and discuss the week’s lessons. Critiques of work are also available although a completed work is not necessary to enroll.

This is a great class for those who want to add power to their plot! even if the plot is only an idea!
