Storylab is a course led by Jonathan Young, a scriptwriter, dramaturg and theatre-maker who has crafted original stories for 20+ years and has successfully taught Storylab to over 100 students at LISPA in London and Berlin over the past 3 years.
The course is suitable for anyone who wants to learn how to craft compelling, dramatic or comic stories – fiction and non-fiction writers, storytellers, playwrights, theatre-makers and screenwriters.
The first block of five weeks will cover the fundamental principles of creating stories through tuition, discussion, exercises and examples from film, theatre and fiction; the second five weeks will be focussed on helping each person develop and refine their own story through exercises, coaching and additional teaching. To get the most from the course, he recommends you do both blocks, however, the second block is optional.
