Generating Authentic Ideas

Join Christopher DeWan and Laurie Lamson in this brainstorming session to generate not only more ideas, but ideas that deliver a winning recipe. There are two halves to the creative process: generating ideas and then finding shapes to hold them. Screenwriting workshops tend to focus on the second half - structure - because it's easier to teach. But ideas themselves are considered unteachable, arcane and magical - gifts from the muse.


Where do ideas come from? How can you cultivate them into stories you want to tell? And how do you maintain a state of mind so you're always generating more? This teleconference will offer tangible techniques and useful tricks to create writing that resonates with relevant, personal themes - writing that rises up unplanned from your unconscious and leads you toward stories that only you could write.
