Ever wonder why the flow of so many adventure movies and books seem so familiar? The Hero’s Journey is traced through mythology and was coined by Joseph Campbell in 1949 in his work The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Join me in a brief detailed overview of the timeless structure as we unveil common character types and the literary parts of a hero’s self-discovery. We will break down each stage, recognizable tropes, patterns we’ve all seen before, and help one another decipher story trends to keep an eye out for in the future! You’ll be surprised to learn just how much you already know. -Presented by Claire Heaney
