The Heroine’s Journey Seminar

4-6 Hour Seminar

Miss Carriger is an experienced teacher – articulate, insightful, and not afraid to make a fool of herself. She offers this seminar online only once a year via the Writing the Other webinar series, or in person as a master class option at writer’s conferences.

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:

  1. Narrative beats and steps to write a compelling journey and an understanding of why these are appealing based on history and mythology.
  2. An understanding of why genre fiction (and romance in particular) is dismissed, vilified, and disregarded, and how to combat this negative stereotyping.
  3. A solid and powerful alternate model to the overused and chronically discussed Hero’s Journey.

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 educational and not really appropriate for fan-facing conventions.

Online Webinar Organizers/Attendees Please Note 

In 2022 Gail will only be offering this course online as part of the Writing the Other webinar series. Class opens for admission May 1, 2022 and is offered on Saturday June 25, 2022. It fills up fast. Read all about it here.

IN PERSON CONFERENCES PLEASE NOTE 

Gail uses Keynote on a MacBook Air (2017) laptop for her presentations. She’ll need facilities with projection and the appropriate cables for a Thunderbolt 2 port. YOU/HOTEL MUST PROVIDE CORRECT HDMI ADAPTER.
