October 14 

Tim Sunderland

 Understanding the Three-Act Structure


Tim spent 25 years in the advertising industry and his freelance credits include pieces in the Los Angeles Times, Motor Trend, and Outside. His talk is about plot development, the need for plot points, and how this formula helps a writer outline the story and know what needs to happen before they start writing. He cites examples in well-known movies and novels to illustrate his points.
