The Mind-Palace was created by friendly neighbourhood mindflayer, Joseph Sale, to help writers and storytellers level up their narratives.
With over 20+ books published (fiction under his name, and many ghost-written books), and years of academic and editing experience, you could wish for no better guide. He will teach you how to create memorable protagonists your audience root for, how to scale-up your stories and add depth to them, how to create visions of hell and lead your hero through them, and most importantly: how to end your stories in a way that will haunt your readers forever.
The first course The Mind-Palace offers is the Epic Bootcamp, with a specific focus on telling bigger, bolder, epic tales.
"Joseph Sale assisted me with the development of my writing and offered a critique that has provided a foundation for future works. He is professional and as a reader of his writing can honestly say he writes with passion and extraordinary vision. His stories pull you into their well-constructed world and invite you to watch the beautifully composed tale unfold."
- Kimberly Redway, Coquettish Professional
