This is a core class I require of all students who study with me at The Studio.  The teaching pulls from the work of Robert McKee, Christopher Booker, Syd Fields, Larry Brooks, Jane Smiley, Steven King, Robert Olen Butler and countless other teachers!  We are going after story, step by step:





Character Development


Antagonistic Forces


You'll leave with a box full of new tools and the knowledge of how to use them.  I've taught this class for five years and everyone loves it!  Fix problems that have plagued you on your current projects, and if you're new, you'll learn story from the ground up and save yourself years of lost time.  

March 10-12. Friday 6-9, Sat. 10-4, Sun 10-4

Cost is $425.00* and that includes light snacks in AM and tea.  All handouts will come to you via email and you are required to print.  You will also be asked to purchase the following books:

Story by Robert McKee

Story Engineering by Larry Brooks

Seven Basic Plots by Christopher Booker

Hurry!  This class fills fast. 

NOTE:  If you want a binder with a hard copy of all handouts, there is an additional $50 change.  Please let me know when you sign up as I only make as many as are requested. You will pay me for these on our first night.
