Write Who You Are (Yosemite Romance Writers)
The most valuable thing you have to offer as a writer is yourself —your knowledge, insights, perspectives, and experiences. By mining what you alone have to offer, you’ll fulfill your potential and connect deeply with your readers.
In this course, students will learn out to:
- identify and assess what they uniquely have to offer readers,
- put a focus on the issues that matter most to them and conveying the emotional truths that make these matter to others,
- select projects that fit their voices, skills, and interests so they can connect more effectively with readers.
Lost in the Story-A Workshop on Reader Immersion (Northeast Ohio Chapter of Romance Writers of America)
We all know what it’s like when we enter a story so thoroughly we forget the world around us. Getting readers totally engaged is a huge part of success for fiction writers. In this class, you’ll work with the instructor to master the four essential elements of story immersion: creating a good foundation (meaning avoiding mistakes that can distract), sensory details (in the right measure), emotion (especially concern for the protagonist), and verisimilitude. As you continue, you’ll learn to architect your story with hooks, surprises, turns, pacing, and a satisfying ending.
The class will conclude with voice, style, and ways to charm the reader.
