The Heroine’s Journey for Writers: Using Ancient Story Structure To Crack Bestselling Genres
We’ve all heard about the Hero’s Journey, but how often do we hear about the Heroine’s Journey?
Multiple NYT Bestseller and chronic writer of the Heroine’s Journey, Gail Carriger, provides a full break down of what aspects of heroine’s journey make for compelling narrative and voracious readers, where these elements originate, why they’re successful, and how to write them.
Take control of story structure by delving behind the scenes for hidden messages. Learn hacks and tips to improve your writing and make it more commercially viable. Gain insight into under-studied narrative conventions and modern publishing markets.
Guaranteed to leave you looking at plot structure in pop culture differently for the rest of your life.
You’ll leave this seminar with the following actionable items:
- Narrative beats and steps to write a compelling journey and an understanding of why these are appealing based on history and mythology.
- An understanding of why genre fiction (and romance in particular) is dismissed, vilified, and disregarded, and how to combat this negative stereotyping.
- A solid and powerful alternate model to the overused and chronically discussed Hero’s Journey.
Miss Carriger is an experienced teacher and not afraid to make a fool of herself. To learn rates and book her for an all day seminar please drop us a calling card.
Gail uses Keynote on a Mac laptop for her presentations. She’ll need facilities with projection screen and the appropriate cables for a Macbook Air laptop with video port. She travels with as many adapters as possible, but she can’t cover them all.
A backup tested Mac with Keynote that works with your projector system and flash drive is appreciated.
This lecture takes 4 hours (with no breaks and no Q&A).
It is suitable for writers of all levels and styles, debut to established, genre to main-stream, screen to gaming to fiction. It is not appropriate for fan-facing conventions.
