Creative Writing: The Craft of Plot

Brando Skyhorse

Overview

'Your book needs a plot readjustment,' says every other editor on the planet. But what really is a plot? Isn't it just a rough outline describing the main events in your story?

Brando Skyhorse, Visiting Assistant Professor of Creative Writing at Wesleyan University, shows us that a plot is more than a series of fortunate and unfortunate events. Skyhorse is the author of The Madonnas of Echo Park, which earned the 2011 PEN/Hemingway Award and the Sue Kaufman Award for First Fiction.

In Creative Writing: The Craft of Plot, Skyhorse introduces you to the art of writing a powerful plot, building a strong narrative, and readjusting your main events and actions in a way that engages your readers.
