Mythic storytelling – elevate your story to the next level
PART 1 – The Power of Myth
Time: 14h00 – 15h00
Speaker: Vicki Bawcombe
About the Session
Let’s examine the power of enduring stories and apply these principles to your project. The work of mythologists such as Joseph Campbell unlocks narrative patterns and character functions that are must-haves for every writer’s toolkit. Part 1 looks at what “mythic” storytelling is and why you need it.
Vicki Bawcombe AKA Scriptwitch is a screenwriter, teacher, and writing facilitator based in Cape Town, where she lectures in the Film Department at CityVarsity. She’s been writing professionally for theatre, film, TV and the world of commerce for 3 decades, and is only just beginning to feel she understands some of the basic principles of the craft of writing for performance media! Nevertheless, teaching posts over the years at UCT, AFDA, and CPUT among others give her the nerve to offer these sessions to fellow writers. Vicki is on the WGSA council.
