Webinar: The Eight Stages of Story
with Greg Smith, NAIWE’s Novel Writing Expert
Storytelling is as old as the human race. Over the ages we’ve come to expect a pattern to storytelling. In this webinar, Greg Smith lays out this time-worn pattern. Based on Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey, mythology, psychology, and screenwriting techniques, the “The Eight Stages of the Novel” will help you plot your story before you put pen to paper. This method was used by hundreds of writers at the Agile Writer Workshop. Now you can benefit from their experience.
