"I've always wanted to write a screenplay, but I don't have the skills."
"I would love to write prose, but I lack the talent."
"I think people who write video games are impressive, but I can only write plays."
As a writer, leaving your comfort zone to try out a new type of writing is hard, especially when you're already so unsure about whether you're even "good enough" in the form of storytelling that's easiest for you.
Most writers throughout history start with one genre. For some it's playwriting, for others it's short stories. But no matter where they start, writers often get stuck calling themselves a certain type of a writer, be it a "screenwriter" or "novelist."
Yet despite what you call yourself, there are still days when you wonder if maybe, just maybe, if you had the training and knowledge, you might be able to write that screenplay that's been on your mind or that short story. But before you can get started, the voices of doubt creep back in and you're back to labeling yourself as "playwright" or a "novelist" instead of what you should be calling yourself...
YOU ARE A STORYTELLER
No matter what medium you prefer to write in - be it experimental plays or lengthy run-on novels - you are learning the same inherent skill, the skill to tell stories. That means that no matter what type of writing you are used to, you have the ability to tell stories in every type of writing medium.
All that you need to do is learn how to use each medium.
With Swiss Army Storytelling, you'll learn how to do just that. You'll take one story idea and transform it into a short story or novel sample, a screenplay, a theatrical play and a video game sample. You'll learn what makes each medium different and how to really utilize each form for their strengths in addition to receiving feedback for each piece you write so you can find ways to keep improving long after the course is done.
But best of all? You'll learn to stop constraining yourself to one medium and how to start thinking like a storyteller.
THIS COURSE IS FOR YOU IF…
