Beautiful words and exciting scenes aren’t enough to propel the reader through a novel. Stories need structure, a plan, a focus from beginning to end.
Story Structure Safari will guide you through the dense jungle of information about story. Our trek will include excursions into the lands of Story Structure and Transformational Character Arcs and Plot.
We’ll step back and explore the sweeping overview of several popular novels and movies to explain and reinforce the concepts. We’ll also take some intimate hikes to zoom in on the work and knowledge of plot and story structure superstars.
Throughout the class, I’ll share information from Story gurus including Shawn Coyne, Lisa Cron, Martha Alderson, James Scott Bell, Robert McKee and bestselling authors including Nora Roberts, Suzanne Collins, and Kristin Hannah.
Using a variety of techniques, you’ll have opportunities to infuse these ideas into your story, creating a tantalizing experience for the reader.
Lisa Miller is a 26-year veteran teacher, as well as a certified counselor. She branched out to pursue her long time passion for writing fiction. A graduate of all things Margie, Lisa created and coordinates the DSDB Alumni Yahoo Loop. Not always finding the writing classes she needs, Lisa scours the internet and how-to books for self-instruction. She has now funneled that knowledge into an online course and merged it with her teaching skills in a desire to share what she has discovered with other writers who want to strengthen their stories.
