The Hero’s Journey: Bringing the Power of Mythic Structure to Your Writing 2013 | October 24 – October 27, 2013

Want to turn your manuscript into a book editors (and kids) can’t put down? The “hero’s journey” will show you what your work is missing and give you a clear trail to follow toward crafting publishable works.

The “hero’s journey” is the mythic structure underlying all successful plots. You’ll learn the stages of the journey and meet the archetypal characters that heroes encounter along the way. We’ll delve into stacks of children’s books, and you’ll learn how to use the journey to inform your work. Tapping into the universal patterns within the hero’s journey will strengthen your stories and guide you in your own journey—toward publication.
