All Levels | Up in the Air author Walter Kirn says the “hack-screenwriter” has a much better sense of storytelling than does the intermediate fiction writer. Why is that? What do screenwriters know that novelists don’t? We’ll examine Christopher Vogler’s 12 Stages of Storytelling and test the stages on stories we know. Students will have the opportunity to outline and workshop their own stories. This course takes place online through our partners at Wet Ink, and classes can be done at your own pace throughout the week.
