About this talk

Four-act structure, three-act structure, the Hero's Journey, Save the Cat--all are excellent tools for structuring your plot. But here's a little-known secret: You really can't know WHAT happens in your novel until you know WHY it happens, and that deep "why" is a function of character arc.

In this class, participants will learn how to use the protagonist's internal journey to structure, develop, and troubleshoot their novel's plot--and, in the process, develop a story that's not only propulsive, from the first page to the last, but meaningful as well.

In the face of the many crises unfolding in our world, it's easy to feel powerless. But as storytellers, we actually have a great deal of power. The power to reroute synapses and open hearts. The power to interrogate, expose, and ultimately replace the bad stories that got us here. It’s time to wield that power consciously. In this 20-page ebook, I share 9 core strategies for creating "story medicine"--narratives with the potential to help, heal, and transform culture.
