More about THE BOOK. More about THE COURSES


“From the gossip we share, to the TV series we binge on, to the political narratives that shape our lives — stories define us. Learn how they work and transform the way you do everything.”

“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.​”

“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.”
