Hi, I’m André van Haren, the lead programmer of StoryCraft New Edition, a powerful story development program based on the proven Jarvis Method.
StoryCraft guides writers through the essential elements of crafting compelling stories, including developing the concept, plot, characters, and more. Whether you’re a seasoned novelist or a fledgling storyteller, StoryCraft helps you bring your creative ideas to life.
Originally created by John Jarvis and Irwin Berent in 1996, StoryCraft has gone through several iterations over the years. To offer a greater evolution of the program, I decided to recreate StoryCraft from scratch using a new programming environment called Xojo. This gives more flexibility for continuous improvement and growth.
StoryCraft New Edition is scheduled for release in early 2024, initially available for MacOS only. As a small one-person company, it is not possible to continue supporting multiple versions of the program, so the previous Filemaker version of StoryCraft New Edition will no longer be developed. Neither will Irwin Berent’s legacy Windows version of StoryCraft.
Thank you for your interest in StoryCraft New Edition. I’m confident you’ll find this program an invaluable tool in your storytelling journey.
André van Haren, Lead Programmer of StoryCraft New Edition
