Collected Wisps of Thought

{October 29, 2008}   The Hero’s Journey

Perhaps you or someone you know might be interested in an upcoming workshop for which I will be a
guest faculty member…

What is it?

Well, a treat really. I know… in this economy who feels like they can treat themselves to a weekend away? But you know what… after this election is over and before the holidays hit full on, we all deserve a couple days relaxation. This is a time to study the craft of writing, to put your feet up in your personal cabin on a gorgeous property in rural Pennsylvania, and to enjoy three meals a day cooked by an award-winning

So, here are the details:

The workshop is titled The Hero’s Journey.

When: November 20-23, 2008 (begins Thursday afternoon at 3 PM with a tour
of Highlights and Boyds Mills Press)

Where: near Honesdale, PA

The subject: we’ll be discussing The Writer’s Journey by Christopher
Vogler — a book that shows how writers can use the mythological hero’s
journey to strengthen their stories. The Hero’s Journey workshop helps
writers at any stage focus in on the way stories work, and on what makes
some stories truly resonate.
