Connemara Dr & Culross Avenue, Thornlie, 6108
Plan and outline your novel with The Hero’s Journey!
Discover how Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey can help you plan and outline your novel. With examples from George Lucas’s classic Star Wars series, learn how ancient mythologies shape many of the world’s most popular stories, how you can use this structure to give shape to your book, and prepare a plan that will help guide you through the novel writing process.
All participants will also receive a workbook to help develop a solid story concept from nothing through to detailed story beats. This is a great opportunity to plan your novel for National Novel Writing Month or learn how to add flesh to the basics of a story idea you might already have so that the writing flows smoothly and easily in November, or whenever you choose to begin your first draft.
