MEET THE MINDS THAT INSPIRED MYTHULU
Here is a collection of our favorite story mentors:
Write About Dragons
Brandon Sanderson's creative writing course taught at BYU. This YouTube channel recorded the class 3 times. In our opinion, the 2nd year is the most concise. Casual vibe with brilliant content. Thanks, Brandon!
Dave Farland's full collection of educational courses, available as a monthly subscription. The videos are short and easy to work through. The course, "Writing Enchanting Prose" is particularly brilliant.
Writing Excuses Podcast
15 minutes long, because you're in a hurry and they're not that smart... Now in its 15th season.
The Journey of Re-enchantment
Professor Craig Chalquist's thoughtful model emphasizes why heroes need to leave home, what we get from being away, and what heroes do when they return. This is the Hero's Journey 2.0 --- keeping everything that was good, massively improving it overall.
This is our favorite "Making of a hero" story model so far.
Superstars Writing Seminar
A special conference that focuses on the business of writing, instead of the craft. Takes place every February in Colorado Springs. Bestselling authors come as attendees, and this conference tends to attract a small crowd of super-serious writers. Agents and editors come here to scout talent. In our opinion, if you're serious about writing as a career, you can't not attend Superstars.
