Most people are familiar with Joseph Campbell's monomyth but have not heard of Maureen Murdock's Heroine's Journey. Murdock builds on the hero's journey and shows how it's different for the feminine. In this class, we will explore the nine steps as well as their similarities and differences to Campbell's scholarship. We will also apply them to the popular Hunger games MC, Katniss, and find ways to integrate the heroine's journey into our own writing.

Week 1: steps 1-3, Katniss' journey through Hunger Games, personal application exercises
Week 2: steps 4-6, Katniss' journey through Catching Fire, personal application exercises
Week 3: steps 7-9, Katniss' journey through Mockingjay, personal application exercises

All weeks will offer peer and instructor feedback through a Slack channel.
