MYTH ONLINE CLASS
How to Write the World’s Most Popular Genre.
John Truby’s Myth Online Class shows you how to write one of the new myth forms that are popular the world over.
Myths show us archetypal characters and life changes that transcend cultures. And the myth form is the basis of more blockbuster films and novels than any other genre by far. The trick is to use one of the ten new myth forms that will change popular storytelling for the next two decades.
This online class takes you step-by-step through the storytelling process, from one-line idea to final script, so that you can write an excellent work of fiction. In each of the lessons, you will first study the material and then complete the appropriate writing exercise.
