Subtext: Go Below the Surface of Your Story, Plot, and Context
(part of the Everything Your Need to Write a Beautiful Story series)

There’s a whole world going on between the lines. That world is called subtext. If you use it improperly, your readers are confused. If you use it wisely, your story is twice as powerful.

In this workshop we will examine the many types of subtext and how you can employ them to create characters and situations of great fascination for the reader. We will show you how to go below the surface of story, plot, and context.

Learn to recognize—and control—the implicit narrative.
