One: Foundations

In Foundations, the writers have three objectives: 1) to discover their core story; 2) to develop the core story with enough drama to entertain audience or reader; and 3) to begin the quest for voice. Writers who complete this first course will exit with three pieces of writing: a plot synopsis in three acts (8-10 pages); a dramatic scene (5-6 pages); and an extended essay that explores the writer’s hopes and fears, dreams and motives and skills. To prepare for the second course, Scene and Plot, writers should work on character, scene, and plot.
