In an interview, Flannery O'Connor famously stated that "most people know what a story is until they sit down to write one."

Story Design Workshops


From time to time, I will run story design workshops with a group of cohorts. These are great for learning designers, professional storytellers, and writers. The next session is Oct 7-14, 2021. The first virtual meeting is at noon Eastern Time or 10am Mountain Time. Although it’s virtual, space is incredibly limited so everyone gets due attention.

Virtual Training


Get live, remote coaching on a wide variety of storytelling topics, as well as access to incredible resources, worksheets, checklists, reading lists, and time-saving tech recommendations. Popular subjects include compelling commercial ideas, selling with stories, how to finish your screenplay, writing your first novel, and storytelling for learning designers.

I have a fair amount of free or low-cost pre-recorded content, so be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel for updates.
