This half-day workshop explores the structure of story and the power of applying story elements to all forms of artistic expression. Participants will leave with the ability to think like a storyteller when they create. (Note: Story Craft is not a marketing or What-Do-I-Do-Next? workshop for those with finished books or scripts to sell. It is for those who want to create or refine a creation-in-progress.)
Four weeks after the workshop, participants are invited to return and share their progress in stories previously or newly conceived.
