Description

'A truly revolutionary look at the how and why of storytelling’

Craig Pearce, co-writer with with Baz Luhrmann: Strictly Ballroom, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge, The Great Gatsby.

This is a unique opportunity to join acclaimed story tutor and author of Sunday Times bestseller The Science of Storytelling in an intimate five day workshop. Whether you've been working on your project for years, or you're staring at an empty page, this course will offer invaluable perspectives on character and plot, and how the two must work together to create original, compelling and moving stories.

Based on the cutting edge insights into mind and brain, and using examples ranging from bestsellers and blockbusters to arthouse and literature – from Fleabag to Jaws to the novels of James Baldwin – Will Storr will lecture for around two hours per day. You will then have an extended lunch period in which write before the group, of no more than twenty people, gather again to discuss their works in progress.

A longtime sold-out favourite at The Faber Academy, this course is especially suitable for novelists, playwrites, screenwriters and filmmakers.

You will learn:

- How to create compelling, original and psychologically true characters

- How those characters change and create their own stories

- The secrets of the subconscious and its importance to writing profound and moving stories

- How to understand the difference between bestsellers/blockbusters and arthouse/literature

- The secrets of plotting: the standard five act structure versus literary structure

- How to grab and keep attention

- The psychology of antagonists and protagonists

- How to write an unforgettable ending

- And more...
