Whether you prefer to outline your stories or dive right in, you should be clear on 7 basic story elements to guide your process (main character, everyday life, empathy, disruption, new situation, goal/motivation, conflict). We’ll learn best practices for each element, and how loglines, synopses, 60-second pitches, movie trailers, book covers, outlines, treatments and story structure all spring from these 7 elements.

*Free workbook provided. Please bring your own pen or pencil.
