Breaking Down The Hero’s Journey Plot Structure

Episode Transcript:

In 1949, mythologist Joseph Campbell published The Hero With a Thousand Faces, which outlines the structure of the journeys that archetypical heroes experience in world myths. 

This structure became known as the monomyth, or Hero’s Journey, and has since served as the framework behind many popular speculative fiction books and films, including Star Wars, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Hunger Games, Ender's Game, and The Lord of the Rings.

Learn how to utilize the Hero's Journey plot structure to outline your own epic fantasy or science fiction story in today's episode!
