The Archetypes

And Why They Matter

Archetypes are the universal models of behaviour that reflect our experience of the world and how we explain it in the stories we tell. As old as time, the archetypes describe traits and roles of character, the shape of stories, and even the types of story we tell: especially the popular Hero's Journey. 

When you become aware of the way archetypes help shape a novel, story or screenplay, it transforms your ability to plan, plot and populate your story. It provides a map to follow and a clear way to stay on track to the finish.

Our FREE one-hour workshop will give you an enlightening introduction to these valuable tools for writing. Through a series of practical exercises, you will experience for yourself how the archetypes can help you plan a story while maintaining a clear sense of the function and purpose of each step within it. That's all in just one hour. 

Access anywhere

You can enjoy the workshop in the comfort of your own home or take your laptop to a favourite place where you won't be disturbed. It doesn't matter where you are as long you have access to WIFI and can focus on the work at hand.
