Storytelling Lessons from Masters, January 2022

IconPeople think I’m kidding when I claim that three episodes of The Simpsons are some of the most well-crafted stories in the history of the human race. But I stand by the claim. I have designed these lessons using choice episodes as case studies to help you craft your own stories.

  • Desire, Conflict, & Reversals: Bart the Daredevil
  • Empathy, Setups & Payoffs: Krusty Gets Busted 
  • Protagonist Responsibility: Bart Gets an F 
  • The Telling of the Story: Hungry are the Damned; The Telltale Head. 

Eight serious hours of cartoons and enlightenment, without homework. But if you want to get the most from this course, prepare a story of your own to apply the lessons!

This webinar offers practical tools you can put to use each week, and it may be the most boiled-down presentation on story elements and principles you will find, with some of the best storytelling examples I know.

Registration is now open, but if you want to know more about what to expect, you can watch a recording of the pre-meeting here.
