About the Book:

The Virgin's Promise demystifies the complexities of archetypes and clearly outlines the steps of a Virgin's Journey to realize her dream. The Virgin's Promise describes structural beats that feel incredibly familiar but have not been illustrated in any other screenwriting book. Kim Hudson explores the yin and yang of the Virgin and the Hero as they journey to embrace their power as individuals, and includes a practical guide to putting this new theory into action.

What people say:

"This book pounds me with how much I didn't know." — Christopher Vogler from the foreword to The Virgin's Promise

"For a work as thought provoking and even profound as this, The Virgin's Promise is thankfully accessible and not for a minute esoteric during its read. The icing on the cake is Hudson’s style and use of language. At once simple and yet complex. The Virgin's Promise is a bit like the perfect haiku: Sparse and philosophical." — Deepa Mehta, screenwriter and producer of Fire, Earth, Water and Bollywood/Hollywood

"The Virgin's Promise is a groundbreaking and profound addition to the canon on screenplay structure. With great clarity Kim Hudson offers a method for understanding and writing successful screenplays about characters whose dramatic journey follows an internal path to discovery and acceptance of their true identity in spite of formidable obstacles. I am certain that many important and successful new films will be inspired by this book." — Sharon McGowan, producer of Better Than Chocolate and The Lotus Eaters

"A story well told can change the world. Hudson unlocks the secret to writing stories of self fulfillment in this lovely and inspiring book. A must read for all storytellers and screenwriters." — Mireille Soria, producer of Ever After

About the Author:

Kim Hudson grew up in the Yukon, a father's daughter with a Cinderella complex. She spent many years exploring her masculine side as a field geologist and a First Nations' Land Claims negotiator before studying at Vancouver Film School, University of British Columbia, and the International School of Analytical Psychology Zurich. Kim's personal journey and scholarly inquiry combined to develop this theory of the Virgin's archetypal structure. Over the past four years Kim has given workshops and classes in the Vancouver area on The Virgin's Promise.
