How can taking a bird's eye view of the story help us make sense out of the complicated work of structure? In this workshop, we'll engage with turning points and the central heart of what gives a narrative meaning, exploring strategic approaches and discussing our own work and experiences with the process. Students are encouraged to bring a story of their own to diagram out and analyze.
