About The Class
Written and presented by author Tom Harper, The Fundamentals of Storytelling is a theoretical approach looking at how stories are put together.
As Tom says, 'Before you can write a novel, you have to be able to tell a story. A good story holds your book together, helps you make good choices about your characters and plot, hooks the reader and leads you to a satisfying ending.'
From the basic formula that all stories follow, to the universal truths that super-charge storytelling, Tom will explain how to write stories that grab the reader’s emotions and keep them turning the pages in this 1+ hour class.
Authors Sara Sheridan and Imogen Robertson join Tom to discuss his theories and show there are many different ways to reaching a finished novel that has clarity and power. Tom shares some insights he gleaned from working with master storyteller, Wilbur Smith.
