The Power of Storytelling
Telling an interesting story is difficult. Writing an interesting story is thorny, intricate, and considerably more complicated.
If you’re eager to learn how to captivate readers with a gripping story—be it nonfiction or fiction, blogs or books, newsletters or emails—then this class is for you.
I’ve written stories for a decade—including some very popular nonfiction and my bestselling novel—and I’ve learned myriad lessons along the way: I’ve learned how to delight readers with my characters. I’ve learned how to make people yearn for more. I’ve learned what resonates with readers emotionally.
Most important—I’ve learned my recipe for writing a great story, and I’ll teach it to you during my four-week class.
This course is designed to be taken over four consecutive weeks, but, for your convenience, it can be stretched up to sixteen weeks. The course includes:
