The Writer’s Journey: 25 Years & Counting

Myth has always shaped our stories. From the amphitheaters of Athens to star-studded Hollywood, how we define our place in the larger world around us has engaged writers, philosophers, and filmmakers for untold eons. In the 25 years since its publication, The Writers’ Journey has become one of the most formative text for all manner of storytellers. And now more than ever, we are clamoring for new voices, new perspectives, and new heroes to take us on their own unique journeys.

Join this expert panel of storytellers for a night of inspiration and investigation into the mythic roots of the stories that drive us, from Aristotle’s Poetics to Joseph Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces to George Lucas’ Star Wars. Celebrate what makes the purpose and power of telling stories.

This Mythosophia event is presented by Michael Wiese Productions & ScreenCraft with the support of our partners: Myth Salon, Mythology Channel, Mack Sennett Studios, Conscious Good, Hollihock, and Hussian College in Studio.
