Storytelling for Humans in
the Age of AI

The way we write has evolved, the way we read has changed and the way we use language has altered for good. The collective clamour for immediacy puts images first while algorithms override and automate human connection.

So do we still need stories in today’s visual and virtual worlds?

Yes we do – perhaps more than ever — but we need to approach it in a different way. This online session is designed to help you get to grips with great storytelling and write with confidence.

Learn how to create stories that inspire your humans in our new age of AI.

Learn to use the technology to support - not supplant - your storytelling.  This course gives you the time to refresh your storytelling strategies, renew your enthusiasm and rethink your approach.
