    October 2018 was my fourth venture into Karel’s ‘Story Cave’. It was wonderful to see the farm again, be embraced by Annie’s warmth, to see the animals, and to relax in the serenity of the surrounding bush. The cave is a nurturing experience for the mind and body. I left understanding more about story structure and more about myself as a writer. It was, again, a privilege to have spent five days with Karel – and also, of course, with the other writers. It is a time where true relationships are formed. Great camaraderie grows from ‘the cave’. I came out with two new feature film concepts and draft treatments, one of which is now well under way. As I have said before, without my ‘cave’ experiences, I would not have won the awards, placing and nominations that I have to date. Each cave has jettisoned my writing to the next level. What one achieves in ‘the cave’ would take months to achieve in the outside world.
    Thanks for the great experiences Karel. ☺ They are treasured.

    There are a lot of great reasons to love the Story Cave. For me, it was wonderful to be free from all the concerns and pressures of everyday life so that I can focus on story craft. What writer doesn’t dream of a place to spend all day either doing one’s writing, talking about one’s writing, sharing one’s writing or getting expert advice on one’s writing?

    Working with Karel was fantastic. Not only is his enthusiasm for powerful stories contagious, but script problems that might otherwise take months to uncover quickly came to the surface.

    Additionally, the chance to have time to share and discuss with the group, whether in a session or just chatting during a bush walk, was wonderful. Talking with people who were also grappling with writing, careers and projects was equally uplifting and positively challenging.

    Hi Karel,

    This is a very belated but heartfelt thankyou for the Cave Workshop!!It was a very steep learning curve for me but such an enjoyable one. I came away with a whole new understanding of story structure which I’m feeling sooo excited about applying further to my script!!! Thank you for your knowledge and expertise in guiding me to this.

    It was such a lovely bunch of inspiring people to spend time with and Annie and staff were so welcoming.

    As we discussed, I would really love to attend another ‘Cave’. Please keep me updated with the details.
