ANALYZING THE SUCCESSES OF THE PAST AND PRESENT FOR CREATING UNIQUE
STORIES OF THE FUTURE.
In our evolving world, stories are evolving too and with never-ending ideas, today’s writers must delve deeper when creating stories that stand out in a crowded marketplace. Researching the success of the past and present provides writers with instrumental tools, equipping them for shaping stories of the future. From wordless picture books to mature and real-life content in middle grade and YA—publications have come a long way! And as writers continue to use the elements of a story in ways that the story demands, the possibilities of executing ideas in unique ways are endless. Like our world and stories, the standards in publishing are constantly evolving too.
With an accompanying handout and writing exercises, this intensive will highlight how publications have evolved, what we can learn from the success (and failure) of others, and how each element of a story depends on other elements.
