Hero's Journey Storytelling Framework


The Hero's Journey is a classic story structure that was first introduced by academics Joseph Campbell in 1949. Campbell formulated the Hero's Journey by referring to various histories that took place in the world, including the stories of the prophets. In general, The Hero's Journey is a story in which a brave character goes out of his place of residence to get what they need, face conflict, and ultimately win over adversity.

The Hero's Journey Christopher Vogler 

In 2007, screenwriter Christopher Vogler improved Campbell's original structure in his book, The Writer’s Journey. In it, Vogler narrowed down 17 stages in the Campbell phase, and made it to only 12 stages consisting of the following:

1. The Ordinary World
2. The Call of Adventure
3. Refusal of the Call
4. Meeting the Mentor
5. Crossing the First Threshold
6. Tests, Allies, Enemies
7. Approach to the Inmost Cave
8. The Ordeal
9. Reward (Seizing the Sword)
10. The Road Back
11. Resurrection/Atonement
12. Return with the Elixir





This story structure does not need to be followed in its entirety. You can think of this structure as a basic map in the process of making stories and improvising in the middle of the story to make the story more dynamic.
