Whether you're new to writing or a pro, here are resources to make us all better!
Joseph Campbell - Any work by Campbell will give you a wealth of knowledge. My favorites are The Power of Myth, The Hero's Journey, and The Hero with a Thousand Faces. There are many to choose from, and they are all phenomenal. Also, check out The Joseph Campbell Foundation at https://www.jcf.org/
Christopher Vogler - This is another prominent teacher of storytelling. His work breaks off from that of Campbell with the extension of ideas and structure. Check out his book, The Writer's Journey: Mythic Structure For Writers, and his blog at https://chrisvogler.wordpress.com/
Robert McKee - A leading seminar presenter, McKee knows all about story structure. Check out his book, Story: Style, Structure, Substance, and the Principles of Screenwriting, and his website at https://mckeestory.com/
David Trottier - His screenplay formatting guide is a must-have for anyone interested in writing for the entertainment industry. Check out his book, The Screenwriter's Bible, and his website at https://www.keepwriting.com/davet.htm
