We recorded this four-part, boiled-down course on storycrafting in 2022 with a live audience using some of the best episodes from early seasons of The Simpsons. You will learn the elements and principles of great storytelling, and how to apply them to your story projects. These lessons will make sense to you if you're as young as Bart, but they will challenge you to sharpen your skills as a professional. Look over the topics!
