When you write a story, you want it to move people and make them think...
...but how do you design stories to communicate the ideas and emotions you intend, in the most effective ways possible?
This workshop gives writers in all genres the (numerous) answers.
It will help to ensure that you're creating a truly satisfying emotional journey, which becomes richer as your story develops.
The workshop draws on cutting-edge techniques from recent TV, as well as forgotten methods from classic films and prose fiction.
We'll see how narratives can be designed to evoke shock, suspense, anticipation, surprise, and powerful reversals of expectation.
It will also show how character and visual elements can become integral elements of a narrative's overall design.
Exercises and carefully-chosen clips will help you to generate ideas and absorb the workshop's concepts.
What they're saying:
"Very to-the-point and detailed ... I would recommend it to a wide range of writers who are working on diverse projects."
"I'm now thinking about my stories in different ways, and how I can apply what I've learnt."
"Good for provoking new ways of thinking about your projects."
"It covered the topic well, with lots of interesting and useful clips to emphasise key points."
