When Damien Walter asked Twitter to name the greatest 21st century myth he got an unexpected answer – from Neil Gaiman himself
“When the 21st century myth comes along, we will know.”Neil Gaiman
My new course is Advanced Science Fiction & Fantasy, writing the 21st century myth. Pre-enrollment has already attracted almost 4000 students from 30 nations.
I know I am ready to launch a new course when I find the key concept that makes a complex idea simple.
For the Rhetoric of Story that idea was the 7 part structure of…the rhetoric of story.
For Writing Practice the core idea are the 11 heuristics to empower good writing.
I’ve been thinking over a course in scifi & fantasy storytelling for many years. The concept I needed to make it work came in a Twitter conversation with Neil Gaiman.
Scifi & fantasy are modern myth making. We need new myths for the 21st century ahead of us. The aim of my newest course is to help the writers who will write the 21st century myth.
Could it be you?
