On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, the How Story Works podcast will begin a 4-season foray into teaching all the concepts of Lani Diane Rich’s narrative theory course in more depth, with more examples, in a conversation with conceptual developer Dr. Kelly Jones, an expert in curriculum and learning, to make narrative theory more accessible, easier to learn, and easier to apply to story criticism, enjoyment, and creation.

  • Season 1: Character
  • Season 2: Conflict
  • Season 3: Structure
  • Season 4: Magic, Craft, and the Writer’s Process

Each season will be a mix of instruction, interviews with writers of all kinds, and a special Q&A for Patreon supporters which will be recorded and later released in audio form as a podcast episode, capping off the season.
