What is a Story?

In The Mix

Yellow text on a dark army green background 'In The Mix - what is a story?'

Jaws. Beowulf. A Quiet Place. The Wizard of Oz. Jurassic World. Get Out. Why are successful stories so similar?

In this session we’ll dig into the universal story archetypes, and ask how we can apply them to our work. 
Learn how to develop a story so that you take readers on an unforgettable journey.

In The Mix is in collaboration with Black Creators Matter, BBC Studios Talentworks and Barbican Creative Learning.
