  7 Day Storymaking Retreats in France for Novelists and Screenwriters
September 12-18, 2015
September 21-28, 2015

  • One-on-one with James Bonnet for seven days in a beautiful chateau in France
  • Start a new project, develop a work-in-progress, take your story to the next level
  • Master the art of your novel or screenplay through an understanding of story

These private sessions in Nans sous Sainte Anne, France, with James Bonnet, the author of Stealing Fire from the Gods: The Complete Guie to Story for Writers and Filmmakers, and considered by many to be the leading authority in all things related to story and storymaking, will take you beyond Three Acts and The Hero’s Journey to a more complete understanding of the story principles you will need to create successful novels and story films that are significant, enduring and have universal appeal.

As we begin our journey together, we will take an in-depth look at the essence of story – that without which there would be no story - and the hidden structures all great stories have in common. Then as we continue to fine tune your story, you will experience the source of your creativity, how to create charismatic characters, narrative structures that will make your story unique, and high concept great ideas and log lines that will generate excitement and compel the right people to get involved.

Autumn in eastern France is tranquil and beautiful — the perfect place for a creative writing adventure. Each evening we will gather together to discuss important films or books over a delicious dinner and excellent wine.

Similar programs are also available in August and October near the beach in Santa Monica, California. See our website for details.
