5.0 out of 5 stars Structure is everything!, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
You can't teach writing is true but structure can be taught and learnt. If you're serious about writing, not just for television but for any medium, then this book is ideal! John Yorke knows his onions, having worked with some of the greatest writers on British television as a script editor, producer and commissioning editor. In Into The Woods he lays out clear paths to follow, to help you tell your story. It's packed full of tips and suggestions with clear reference points - using anything from Greek dramatists to Wife Swap! It's not a prescriptive book - there are clear signposts to help you along the way, but they're not orders, they are universal truths about all stories which makes it a fascinating read, not only for writers (of all abilities) but also for actors, directors or for anyone interested in how stories are 'made up'!
