Last summer I appeared as a guest lecturer at the Odyssey writing workshop. What I talked most about was story structure, what it is, and why it’s important. The folks at Odyssey have just posted an excerpt from my lecture as a podcast that you can listen to online, or right-click on to download as an MP3 file. They have a number of similar excerpts online, and if you’re interested in hearing writers talk about the craft of writing, here’s the list of lectures. If writing is one of your interests, check them out.
