Identifying Your Story Engine with Literary Manager

"This story engine Webinar is the best ever. I’ve read so many books, etc... and in only an hour with this, I feel like I truly get it." -Carrie P.

"The Webinar from Conrad Sun about Story Engines was EXTREMELY useful. I've been trying to crack my pilot and now realize what's been lacking in the script (some character goals, as well as stakes). I am going to re-outline my pilot after watching that." -Jaclyn C.

One of the number one questions executives ask writers is "What is the engine of your story?" This engine is the driving force of the feature or TV pilot. This is your project's fuel, your story's heart. It’s what makes your audience want to keep watching. In one word, the engine of your story is **essential**. Conrad Sun, manager from Meridian Artists, will be breaking down what a story engine is and how you can make sure your engine is golden. He will be going over story engines for Walking Dead, Friday Night Lights, Orange is the New Black, Jerry Maguire, Armageddon and much more.

This 90-Min. Webinar Will Cover:

  • What exactly is a story engine?
  • How to test the viability of your story engine
  • The difference between internal vs external stakes and why they’re co-dependent on each other
  • How to properly pitch your series engine
