Story Structure Safari is much more than the class I teach. It is a mindset. A lens through which to view, study, and create powerful stories.
Beautiful words and exciting scenes aren’t enough to propel the reader through a novel. Stories need structure, a plan, a focus from beginning to end.
In Safari, I use examples from bestselling novels, successful movies and TV shows to illustrate concepts. I’ve developed a variety of techniques throughout Story Structure Safari, to help take full advantage of opportunities to infuse compelling essentials into your story. Creating a tantalizing experience for the reader.

Each time I’ve come out of the Story Structure Safari class with a good, solid framework for a novel. I know who my protagonist is, what he or she needs, the protag’s flaws and weaknesses, and what drives the antagonist to stand in opposition. I know what the stakes are.

Story Structure Safari takes my ideas and pushes me to make the story more engaging. When I am done with the class, I always like my story better because I am asked tough questions and have to really think about what the story I want to tell needs instead of slapping random things on the page and pray it will make sense in the end.
