At the core of every great work of fiction lies its soul—the ineffable thing that motivates its characters’ actions and speaks to the world with their voices, saying, “Let me tell you something you need to know.” The writer who aims for greatness must ask: “Where do I look for that soul, and how do I unveil it?” Discovering the Soul of Your Story answers both.

Through lecture, discussion, and group exercises, participants learn to apply two new and original techniques for uncovering the deeper meanings of their stories and charting their stories’ truest courses—and a third technique that combines the first two to generate stories from scratch.

To view a list of upcoming classes in this very special writing technique, visit the Soul of Your Story Academy, an online campus dedicated to the exploration and application of the principles presented in my book titled Discovering the Soul of Your Story.
