About the webinar:

Every writer has a wealth of creative potential, but it can be a daunting if not
 impossible task to gain access to those interior places where the true power
of story is waiting to be unleashed. In this webinar Dara Marks teaches writers
 how to create a natural story structure that reflects the authentic nature of the
 human experience. Her innovative method for structuring story is designed to
keep writers focused on the heart and soul of their work so that plot, character,
 and theme create a unified whole. The interrelationship of these key story
 elements forms the basis of the transformational arc of character. Marks
 explains, "The transformational arc is the deeper line of structure found
 inside the story. It is an organic template that writers can use to ensure
 that the intricacies of plot and character grow naturally out of your original
 thematic intention."

The transformational arc is, therefore, the interior line of structure. Whereas
 the plot guides the external conflict and action, the arc guides the inner,
 emotional development of the characters as they are forced to deal with
 the conflict of the plot. Using the arc makes the story more human and
relatable and greatly expands a writer's ability to identify and stay focused
on the deeper thematic, emotional and even spiritual dimensions of a story.
 It is the arc that truly makes a script more emotional, meaningful and,
ultimately, this is what makes a script more marketable.

Marks' technique not only enhances our understanding of story structure,
 but it also pushes the craft of writing into the realm of transformative art.
