This week Jeff and I welcome author and Story Grid certified editor Anne Hawley to the show. Anne has been working with Story Grid creator Shawn Coyne on the very first Masterwork Experiment where her task has been to analyze Brokeback Mountain by Annie Proulx at the beat level and then use those beats to create a new, fresh story. In the discussion, Anne explains what the Story Grid method is, what it’s been like to work on the Masterwork Experiment and how her writing style has changed as a result.
