The Emotional Craft of Fiction: How to Tell the Story Beneath the Surface


Presented by: Donald Maass

Date: Thursday, September 12, 2019

Description: The emotional effect of fiction on readers is a craft.  Based on psychological research and study of what makes novels emotionally gripping, this intensive workshop takes participants beyond showing or telling to create an emotional journey for readers—one unseen but nevertheless deeply felt and ultimately unforgettable. This is an intensive, hands-on workshop for serious fiction writers.  Participants should bring a WIP and writing materials.
