What this workshop covers

Our Stay Home workshops are based on our live Zoom Stay Home Sundays, but with the added benefit of being able to download them and enjoy them in your own time, at your own pace. They take about three to four hours, with breaks, and include time for you to write with guided exercises based on the workshop theme. 

The Hero's Journey introduces you to the twelve steps that a hero takes, as outlined by Christopher Vogler in The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers (Michael Wiese Production, 2007). All you need to find out more is your laptop, a notebook and pen, a quiet room and some undisturbed time to yourself. Our expert tutors Kath Morgan and Jane Moss of The Writing Retreat will provide the rest.

Access anywhere

It doesn't matter where you are as long you have access to WIFI. Just make sure you can focus on the work at hand, so you get the most from the course.
