Story Islands

Stornaway’s Story Islands® are scenes, sequences, chapters or packages, depending on the genre you’re working in.

In the Story Map tool, each Story Island is shown as a box with a brief summary and arrows which show how it links to other islands.

Work in split screen mode or on different screens to follow paths a viewer might take, explore alternatives and get perspective on the whole story.
