We're here to write (again, if you participated last year). Let's hack words! This year we'll have a go at the hero's journey that you have probably already heard of - the marvellous way from your story's hero's home - there, and back again. Together we'll go on tour through the mysteries of transformation, (in)credible stations of the journey and the character archetypes your hero can meet.

The hero's journey is one of the oldest storytelling methods, basically since humanity started telling stories thousands of years ago. And it still works, since it touches our deepest, most human needs and understanding of the world. It mirrors our lives and how we approach life - and how we make our stories' heroes act and react. It's a powerful toolbox to analyze your story, find storytelling issues and helps you, make it work.

And of course, we'll write together!
