Humans are first of all visual creatures, and symbols are basic powerful communication tools. The more consciously you use symbols, images, and codes in your stories, the more effective your message will be. Using appropriate visuals – in prose, poetry, plays, or scripts – will heighten the emotional impact of your story and will connect your audience to the rich stream of meaning — conscious and unconscious — that flows through humanity and our arts.
Learn how symbols and images have been used in story-telling across ages and cultures and how you can do the same. Explore different categories of powerful symbols and images.
Get guidelines for when and how to effectively write in symbols and imagery.
This course will show you ways to use symbols and images in your own projects so they too will have more powerful, long—lasting impact.
