Truby Story Masterclass in New York City May 13- 15


Oscar nominees, Emmy nominees and Hollywood producers all have something in common.  Many of them have taken John Truby’s The Anatomy of Story Masterclass and have seen how the results have benefited their work.

John Truby’s Anatomy of Story Masterclass will be held in New York City May 13-15 at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Time Square.  For three consecutive days from 9:30am – 6:00pm, A-list story teacher Truby will host hundreds of students from beginner to advanced.  Already registered students will be traveling from around the world to take part in this comprehensive experience.

Los Angeles attendee Ruben Meulenberg won hundreds of dollars worth of Truby material including the acclaimed “Blockbuster” software by entering the Twitter contest.  For your chance to win, simply follow @JohnTruby and RT his NYC Masterclass tweets.

During the Los Angeles class Meulenberg tweeted from his username @TornadoTwins: “John Truby’s story-writing advice caused a paradigm shift in my brain. The old & new braincells are clashing. New…must…win… ”  And days later after working with his new Blockbuster software, tweeted: “In love w/ @JohnTruby’s software “Blockbuster”. It’s made to help u think through ur franchise’s story before u write it. ”  Based on these responses it’s clear to many attendees both the masterclass and software offer valuable writing insight.

Day one of Truby’s Masterclass will detail story design and structure.  Day two will delve into character and dialogue.  Day three will focus on genre techniques.  Each intensive day Truby will explain ideas, techniques and designs in detail, dissect examples, lead discussion, and answer your questions.

Hollywood producer Ralph Winter (X-Men, Planet of the Apes, Star Trek) reveals, “This course is so good I took it twice.”  Emmy-nominated writer Richard Kramer (My So-Called Life, thirtysomething) continues: ”Truby’s class is based on a moral understanding of the world, and makes you not only a better writer, but a better person.

Over the course of a 25-year career as Hollywood’s most respected and sought-after screenwriting teacher and story analyst, Truby offers successful and proven principles that allow the writer to precisely map their entire plot, so they can tell their story in the most dramatic way possible.
