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.
Do it on your own time and schedule. Written Lessons posted Mon-Wed-Fri. Post your Exercises any time on the Lesson comments page if you like. Instructor reponds to posted Exercises Thu-Sat.

Pamela is obviously a very savvy and well-prepared teacher of this subject so I wonder if virtual is the best platform. it felt incredibly lonely except for the moments of interaction when the work was reviewed. And, while I was grateful for the reviews received and the brief repartees, I would have appreciated notes for improvement or perhaps examples of variations to the writing exercise that would demonstrate the deeper versatility in using work. Maybe this platform would be improved if there were short video clips to accompany the lessons, and even the chance to login and Q&A directly with the teacher midcourse and at the conclusion.
