You wouldn’t build a house that had no supporting beams, no foundation and no ceiling. Neither can you tell a satisfying story without having certain structural elements in place. This one day workshop will introduce participants to the basic elements of three act structure and help them learn how to identify and strengthen these elements in their own work.
To prepare for the course I would like participants to watch the film, Witness – twice, preferably – starring Harrison Ford, as we’ll be using it to look at the main points of structure throughout the day. Recommended reading would be The Hero with A Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell, and my novel, The Cleanskin, but I recognise that’s a lot of preparation to ask for, for one day.
