Billy Field brings his years of writing experience into your classroom where he helps students come up with a story idea then helps them see their story through to completion. The class can write a story together, or students can write stories individually.

Billy’s unique method takes the thousand of hours of television and movies that students have watched and translates those hours into solid writing lessons that work for movies, novels, plays and short stories. Students know more about story telling than they think they know. These story conferences help students realize the knowledge they already have. Once you see how the story conferences work, you’ll be able to easily replicate them with other classes.

Each story conference lasts an hour, or the length of your class. Gather your students around a speaker phone and spitball story ideas with Billy – just like a Hollywood story conference!

Remember this poem:

Character, problem,
And a goal,
Makes a great big story bowl.


When your students learn to fill that "story bowl," they will be on their way to being able to write stories that engage, entertain and move the human heart.

To prepare for your first story conference, you’ll need to read the chapter "Story and Script" from the book Make a Movie that Tells a Story. Save $15 dollars when you purchase with a story conference.
