Such a powerful economic and cultural force deserves to be
treated with as much respect as other fields with equal or lesser influence
and power to change the world and people’s lives. . The potential to
further tap the power of story (and through it, the power of the human
subconscious and all its creativity and passion) is enormous.
- The STORY has existed as an
"art" for over 200,000 years, and the Story business may be
the world's largest business, far exceeding $250 billion dollars a
year, with over 30 million in the USA alone working in the story
business. Just the top ten media companies generate $140 billion+ a
year). Besides the worlds of entertainment and publishing, story plays a
powerful, often central role in psychology, healing, diplomacy,
marketing, product development, corporate and organizational leadership,
culture and management. Even lawyers use stories to persuade juries.
Somewhere in the early 20th
century, scientists like Neils Bohr, Max Planck and Albert Einstein started
thinking about physics in new ways that created a scientific revolution
affecting the furthest ranging corners of most of this planet. A similar
evolutionary leap is taking place at the other end of the reality spectrum,
in the world of story.

More on the
meeting; StoryCon Details
art, science and application of story is going through an enormous
explosion of model building, exploration, explanation
and explication. Writers, particularly screen writers,
are taking a varied range of approaches to identifying the elements,
dynamics, dimensions, patterns and even formulae which form stories and
myths-- what makes them great, what makes them work.
The meeting will bring together leaders in the writing world with
psychologists, mythologists, and others in the art, science and business
of story who cover the turf from their perspective. The goal is to get
leaders and innovators in this arena to exchange and share information at
advanced levels-- giving lectures and talking on focused panels.
