Foundation: Next

An Introduction to How Things Are Changing

Narrative First and Storymind are proud to present a series of classes & workshops designed to educate and inspire writers, producers, directors, and key decision makers in the art of telling great stories. Our understanding of narrative and its importance in our lives is changing—Foundation: Next aims to document this change.

If you have ever felt there was something more to story then what you were taught in your creative writing classes then Foundation: Next is for you. If you have ever felt there was more to story than saving cats or angry lectures about positive and negative scene endings then Foundation: Next is for you. But more importantly, if you have ever read or been inspired by anything written here on Narrative First or over on Melanie's site Storymind, then you will absolutely love Foundation: Next.

Starting May 16th with our free introductory event An Evening with Melanie Anne Phillips, the Foundation: Next series will take you through the development of Dramatica, its application in the creation of compelling and complete stories today, and where the theory is headed.

These events will be held at the Write Brother's offices in downtown Burbank, CA. If you can't make it, don't worry—we will also be live-streaming every event. We will also have these classes available online for you to watch and be inspired by at your own convenience.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please add your name and email to the interest list below and we will let you know as soon as we have these classes ready for you.

Once again, we're very excited at having the opportunity to help you in the art & science of telling your story and look forward to seeing you in the near future,

Jim & Melanie

Rid yourself of writer's block. Forever.
