About

This Creative Writing - The Craft of Plot course offered by Coursera in partnership with Wesleyan University is part of the Creative Writing Specialization.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

In this Creative Writing - The Craft of Plot course offered by Coursera in partnership with Wesleyan University aspiring writers will be introduced to perhaps the most elemental and often the most challenging element of story: plot.  

We will learn what keeps it moving, how it manipulates our feelings, expectations, and desires.  We will examine the choices storytellers make to snag our imaginations, drag them into a fictional world, and keep them there. We will learn how to outline and structure a plot, discuss narrative arc, pacing and reversals and reveal the inevitable surprise: connecting the beginning, middle and end.
