Pantser or Planner? Approaches to plotting your novel, with Gail Anderson-Dargatz

The real work of the novelist is developing conflict and structure, and most writers struggle with it. Fortunately, the heavy-lifting has been done for us by past writers. Gail will offer an overview of approaches to constructing plot, whether you’re writing literary or commercial fiction. She’ll follow up with exercises you can do at home to help you better understand story, and the outlining process.

Gail is an award-winning and internationally bestselling author who writes both literary and commercial fiction, as well as hi-lo books for ESL and literacy learner readers. Two of her novels were short-listed for the Scotiabank Giller Prize. Her thriller The Almost Wife, released this summer, was a Toronto Star and Globe and Mail bestseller. She taught in the UBC optional-residency CW MFA program for almost a decade, and now mentors writers privately through her own teaching forums. For more, please see her website: www.gailanderson-dargatz.ca

Also, if you are participating in Nanowrimo this year, the FBCW has got you covered.  With weekly sessions on Tuesdays at 1pm, and Thursdays at 10am, you will find accountability partners, people to bounce ideas off of, and be able to participate in writing sprints.

After Nano, we will also be hosting an Open Mic so you can read some of your work, and in early 2022, we will be having an editing session, so keep your eyes peeled!
