This one-hour talk unlocks that key to the core elements of story structure. Rebecca Laffar-Smith shares an inside look at what makes the stories we love, compelling and universal.
“When I was in primary school my teacher told me that all stories have a beginning, middle, and ending. All stories are made up of these three basic parts. It’s really quite simple. Of course, it’s really not simple at all because it doesn’t tell us where stories begin, what happens in the middle, and how they come together to produce a satisfying ending.”
– Rebecca Laffar-Smith
