Jo Browning Wroe, author of the best-selling and beautifully moving novel A Terrible Kindness and creative writing supervisor at Lucy Cavendish College, will be joining us to share her insights as part of a creative writing Masterclass focusing on different strategies for plotting your writing. 

Is it best to plan your story from the outset or should you embark on an unplanned journey of surprise and discovery? Does your plot need to meet certain criterion to ‘work’? Or is it the result of an organic process that can’t be pinned down? 

There is a bewildering array of opinion on this subject. This workshop provides two hours in which to consider different approaches, to question whether they are quite as different as they seem, and to explore what might be most helpful to you. 

Event Format:

2.5 hour session with 15min break, first part creative writing tutor workshop followed by interactive session with questions from students.

Venue: Online Zoom Masterclass

Duration: 2hr

Tickets available soon.
