The Architecture of Story [Sunil Yapa]
All Levels | Story structure is a taboo subject in a discussion of literary fiction, and yet is all too often our greatest stumbling block. Ever started what you hoped would be a long project only to get stuck on page 42? In this craft seminar, we will explore what makes a story go and what makes it keep going. Using films, TV shows, and novels, we will investigate how to tell a story that feels organic — one which arises out of character, not a random series of events or formulas. Our goal here is to demystify the process of dramatic structure and give you the confidence and dramatic tools you need to turn your vision into that next great novel, film, or HBO series. Lecture followed by Q&A.
