Storytelling in Pop Culture

When we see the word “stories” most of us think about novels.  Many writers in the speculative fiction community write novels, and if you’re visiting this site, odds are you probably enjoy reading novels.  But novels aren’t the be-all and end-all of writing.  I’m guessing that you enjoy at least one other form of storytelling–and possibly more.


Movie scripts.


Writing the story for video games.

TV scripts.

Oral storytelling.

There are all kinds of different ways to tell stories.

This month we’re going to step back from novels and look at other popular ways to tell stories.  Maybe you’ll learn something about a medium you’ve never explored much before.  Maybe you’ll find some insight that you can apply to your own writing.  Either way, join us this month as we go Beyond the Novel to explore other forms of storytelling in pop culture.
