THE NARRATIVE TEAM
“I felt very inspired by learning from John, whose passion and experience was illuminating from beginning to end. I recommend this course to anyone interested in storytelling.”
BECTU Vision and Drama Training
“I found John’s book, the course and his feedback on my treatment very useful and have been applying his Ten Questions and Five Act Structure ideas to pretty much all of my writing ever since. Having read a multitude of books on screenwriting and writing, I have found John’s theory and approach so refreshing, challenging – and yet so simple. It’s an absolute gift.”
