11:00 - 12:00 Morning Program:

Bart Palamaro, The Hero's Journey.  What is it? Why do I need it? What do I do with it?

The Hero's Journey is the structure of all storytelling. 

This structure gives you a skeleton to build your story on.  Understand this and you understand how to outline a story.  This is the bones, the flesh is up to you.

A story at it's most basic is a person with a goal who meets obstacles and opposition in achieving the goal.   In this session we will follow the hero (AKA, the protagonist) using a well known popular story as she/he/it travels through the stages from ordinary life, through enticements and fears, goals and challenges, setbacks and obstacles, meeting enemies and allies, triumph and defeat, rising from the ashes, the ultimate victory and new life.

With Q&A, valuable insights and a touch of humor.

Yup, all in one hour.


1:30 - 3:00 Afternoon workshop:

No afternoon workshop in April.
