There is a lowering of standards and quality in fiction-writing today
because the mythological approach is not being taught.  As a novel-writing
and screenwriting teacher, I have come to the realization that the best
stories have a strong mythological component.
I shall be happy to address any comments/questions about the mythological
approach to writing as well as to offer advice to anyone who is either
learning to write fiction or teaching fiction. (A bit about me: I am known
for developing the "Jarvis Method" of fiction and co-creating the
StoryCraftNet online writing tool.)
If you'd like to read more about my Method and my concepts -- or would like
to contribute an article to the online journal, Story and Myth -- please
see for some of my articles.
