‘The workshop exceeded my expectations,’ said participant and local WA poet Scott Patrick Mitchell. ‘I feel empowered and confident.’
During the workshop, participants examined their existing stories through the lens of the Hero’s Journey, allowing them to reengage with it in an enjoyable way and begin the process of restructuring it.
‘As a result of this Hero’s Journey workshop, I will be making significant changes to my current story,’ said Eva Cronstedt. ‘I think it will be so much more exciting in the process.’
‘I found it easy to use the headings provided to relate to my own storyline as they are generic to any journey,’ said Valentina Jewlachow.
Once again, the writing exercises proved a hit with attendees.
‘The exercises were very conducive to the development of my story,’ said Scott.
‘They were really helpful and helped give me ideas regarding plot and characterisation,’ added a participant who wished to remain anonymous.
Eva agreed. ‘The exercises were very conducive to the development of my story.’
Some even found the workshop useful not only for viewing their story differently, but also empowering our lives.
‘For me, the real life original purpose for this type of story is important for us all to better our own lives,’ said another anonymous participant.
By the end, participants felt inspired and encouraged to apply their new knowledge due to A. R. Levett’s considerate treatment of them and their questions, and were enthusiastic to recommend it to others.
‘A. R. Levett tackled the content in a concise and considerate manner and is very encouraging towards participants’ questions and insights,’ said Scott Mitchell Patrick. ‘Highly recommended.’
‘It was very informative and done in fun ways,’ added a third anonymous participant. ‘A. R. Levett respected our questions and was very encouraging. He gave me inspiration and motivation to keep writing. Highly recommended!’
