Stories are the lifeblood of who we are as individuals, and as a society.
Stories are written to move people, to change people's lives. Writing is about mastering the art and craft of story, not second-guessing the marketplace. A well-told, well-crafted story will always be marketable, and the market has never been better writers, whether you're writing a screenplay, TV show, novel, graphic novel, or even working on a podcast (the hot new market for developing new IP). At Story Expo, you'll have a choice between 60 to 80 professional workshops, classes and sessions in a single, intense weekend, all taught by highly respected and established speakers. You'll learn how and where your story is best told to achieve its greatest success both creatively and financially.
The great French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard said, "Sometimes reality is too complex. Stories give it form.” We all need that push, that inspiration, that allows us to create amazing new story worlds. At Story Expo you'll be surrounded by 600-800 fellow writers from around the world with whom you'll forge new friendships, develop new relationships and establish invaluable contacts. Networking is vital for any successful writer, and you'll be surrounded by like-minded writers who you will find inspiration in, and who will find inspiration in you.
Since 2013, Story Expo has grown each year to become the preeminent conference in the world for story writers in film, TV, publishing, online and more. Every year we strive to produce a bigger and better program, which is why people return year after year. And while other conferences charge $600 or more for conferences offering much less, we've kept our price at $249 from day one. Because we are writers too.
