503Studio Masterclass: Character and Structure

In this masterclass, Richard Marsh will analyse the interaction of plot and character, exploring two different writing perspectives: God Hat and Soul Shoes. One observes the paths you want characters to take, and the other explores the feeling of what that’s like from your character’s point of view. Together you’ll look at how these two viewpoints can interact to the benefit of both, and the story as a whole. This workshop seeks to find out how Soul Shoes and God Hat can get on better. It’s about character and structure, but also hats and shoes.
