STORY MASTERY INTENSIVE MASTER CLASS with Michael Hauge [FULL]
This all-day, hands-on workshop is open only to those who have participated in Michael’s STORY MASTERY seminar. Enrollment is strictly limited to 12 enrollees in order to give all participants the opportunity for feedback on their works in progress –manuscripts, screenplays or nonfiction. Michael will specifically focus on story concepts, character development, plot structure, love stories, and commercial potential.
Prior to the class, each participant will be expected to submit a one-page outline of his or her story to Michael and all other participants in the workshop, AND to read the work by the other participants (this process will be explained in detail after you enroll). It is not necessary to have a completed manuscript or screenplay; the workshop is designed for new projects, first drafts and works in progress.
