The eponymous Mr McKee is a creative-writing instructor who has traveled the world with his popular "Story Seminar" for scriptwriters, which he developed when he was a professor at the University of Southern California. He is also the author of the "screenwriters' bible" Story: Substance, Structure, Style and the Principles of Screenwriting. Many of Hollywood's active screenwriters claim him as an inspiration. Rather than simply handling "mechanical" aspects of fiction technique such as plot or dialogue taken individually, McKee examines the narrative structure of a work and what makes the story compelling or not.
