Discover How to Craft a Rock-Solid Plot.

The pulse of any story is the plot, and just like a heartbeat, the beats of your story propel the audience forward. Whether you are a planner or a pantser, we will guide you through the basic beats that form the skeleton of every great story.

Do you know when the Call to Adventure happens in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone?
What is the B Story Blowout in Star Wars: A New Hope?
When should you include One Last Surprise, and how do you do it without being contrived?

Our favorite stories involve a fascinating character facing engaging conflicts, but without a solid plot to support them, even the most exhilarating characters will fail to shine. Weaving a compelling, cohesive, and memorable plot is at the center of every writer's journey.

Join our two live 90-minute interactive workshops, designed to empower you with the skills needed to craft captivating plots that keep readers turning pages!
