This introductory class is designed for students who want to develop their own story IP, to empower them with a series of practical techniques and mental tools to discover their own storytelling voice. They will learn the creative process in story development from finding an idea to expand the idea into a complete story with beginning, middle and end.

They will learn the fundamentals of storytelling through mini exercises and group discussion. The class will address how to understand and overcome writer’s block, creative fear and insecurity, as well as provide a safe and supportive environment to allow students to share ideas, learn to give and receive feedback.

The goal of the class is to help student kickstart their personal idea and provide the first step to develop their personal IP.
