SEVEN BASIC PLOTS
· the DNA of all stories ·
We've been taught that when we improvise a story we should stay in the present. Agree. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't think about the future.
During this class, we will work on the different possible outcomes of our stories using Christopher Booker's concepts of meta-plot and basic plots. You will learn how to identify the kind of story you are in and understand what it needs to land it safely.
JUNE 27 · 7-9.30 pm (CET · Madrid Time)
