Heroes and Villains: Telling Stories that Change the World Pt. 1&2

  • Neon Parlour 791-793 High Street Thornbury, VIC, 3071 Australia (map)

Presented by Made To create, this is a two part story telling work shop, running over July28th and Aug 4th, 1pm - 5:00pm, facilitated by Eugene Wong.

What makes stories sweep us up and believe in something epic – something bigger than ourselves?

Over two fun sessions this workshop will look at the heroes and villains of the stories we love. Analyse what makes them and their quests exciting, how they interact with each other and what examples can be seen in the world around us.

Then you’ll get the chance to make your own… collaborating to produce characters and outlines for your own stories, that are interesting, fun and believable, while using the skills you've just learned.

You will learn:
•  How to create interesting characters
•  How to construct enthralling situations, and
•  How to change the narrative of your own stories…

And you’ll walk away with:
1. A character that you have designed
2. A basic plot that they engage in
3. An understanding of the way the key characters of your own story can impact the real world!

Suitable for both beginners and experienced writers and story lovers.

What to Bring:
Bring your favourite notebook and pen if you want to, but writing equipment will be supplied.

Early Bird - $210
Concession - $190
Full - $240
