Humans are wired for stories.

Throughout the ages storytelling has took many forms right from drawings on caves to statuses on Facebook.

Is there any craft behind telling an entertaining story? I would definitely say, yes.

Anyone can imagine, dream and write. But in order to streamline your ideas to tell a compelling story; understanding of the craft is must. It involves lot of craft elements like structure, setting, genre, scene building, character, characterization etc.

As Aristotle wisely said every story or character must have a problem, in order to solve his/her problem he/she needs to find some solution and solve it through action over the course of time. Our course exactly does that.
