How do you tell a story that emotionally touches your audience? Special guest Josiah DeGraaf of KingdomPen.com shares with us some vital tips on how to craft a thematic message in your story that resonates with your audience.
Here's what you'll learn:
- Why "subtext" is key to telling a nuanced story.
- The reason that some stories come off as "preachy" and the secret to creating a theme and message that is impactful and connects with people.
- Why most modern Christian allegories are sub-par and what you can do to make symbolism strong.
And we also talk a bit about how community can help you improve your skill as an artist!
