OVERVIEW

What is theme? Story premise? The moral of the story? A story’s DNA? This 1-week online class enables writers to develop a clearer and deeper understanding of theme — what it is, how it functions, and most importantly how to use themes to enrich your stories.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

An actionable definition of theme, using theme to expand a story, using theme to focus a story, theme as talisman, theme as motif, theme as moments, and multiple practical ways to enrich your writing by working with themes.

  • You will learn a coherent take on theme, how it relates to the overall story, and tips on how to weave thematic material into your scripts.
  • You will put to use what you have learned by workshopping some of your own script scenes, developing your ability at working with story themes.

COURSE DETAILS

  • Special insider tips
  • 24/7 online forum discussions moderated by instructor
  • Writing exercises with instructor and class feedback
  • 90-minute live teleconference between instructor and class members

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE
