Making Story

Making Story WEEK 4: July 1 to July 6 TUITION: $500 WORKSHOP: 9am-Noon DISCIPLINE: Multi-Genre OPEN TO ALL ON-SITE HOUSING AVAILABLE

Are you ready to develop your next play, novel, solo show, TV pilot or children’s book? This workshop will give you the tools you need to tell your story. You will find a voice to speak your emotional, political and personal truth, and create a structure that will carry your story further into the world with power and clarity. The work we do over the course of the week is primarily about how to structure your story. We will review the basic elements of story, and then discuss how those elements apply to yours. As you present to the group, we will puzzle out the underlying conflict, illuminate the characters, uncover your deeply held beliefs and create a vivid map of your story. The goal is to leave you familiar with the landscape of your story and have a clear idea of where to dig for treasure, as well as a tangible plan to continue working.

Please note no discounts apply to this workshop.
