WORKSHOP

DEEP NARRATIVE DESIGN

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

This exciting and enjoyable four‐day workshop gives writers in all genres a range of powerful tools to make their stories more moving, effective and memorable.

WHY DEEP NARATIVE DESIGN?

This workshop is intended to inspire creativity and help writers bring the most attractive and interesting aspects of their stories into focus.
It will answer questions like:

  • How can I be sure that my story communicates the ideas and emotions I intend, in the most effective ways possible?
  • Which elements should I choose to maximise my story’s effectiveness?
  • How do I “hook” audiences with a strong and original dramatic question, and make sure that the answer to it is satisfying
  • How can I ensure that I’m creating a truly satisfying emotional journey which becomes richer as my story develops?
  • Does my story already contain elements that make it different and special that I haven’t yet identified and developed?
  • Is my story making optimum use of anticipation, surprise and emotion?

Fun exercises, group discussion and carefully-chosen clips will help you to generate ideas as you absorb the workshop’s concepts and apply them to your own work.
