Overview

There are all sorts of different opinions out there about what occupies a reader's attention - which makes it hard for a writer. Which approach is going to be most effective? What qualities and emotions need working into the protagonist? Is a writer supposed to make their writing sound beautiful to attract the reader, or be honest and show raw emotion?

Lisa Cron is a story coach and author, working with writers, nonprofits, educators, and organizations to help them master the unparalleled power of story. Story-telling is about getting a reader to take action: "Whether that action is turning the pages of a compelling novel or taking to the streets to change the world for the better." [Lisa Cron]

This course will teach how to get emotion onto the page. You'll learn how to decode examples of what emotion looks like. The reader doesn't come for a dramatic plot, but to feel the protagonist's struggle - which is exactly what you can learn to portray in your writing.

"It is creating the story that makes you a writer, not the words you use to put it onto the page or the technique you use."
