Emotional authenticity is a must-have for writers of any genre to make the work relatable and illuminating. Yet such writing can be difficult to fine tune, and sometimes even uncomfortable to create. How do we discuss human nature frankly and with depth, and where to find the courage to take the necessary risks to do so? We’ll discuss all that and will learn practical strategies to hone emotional authenticity, whether in fiction or creative nonfiction.

Learning Outcomes:

  • about the multidimensional concept of emotional authenticity
  •  reflective writing skills
  • describing complex emotional states
  •  creating emotionally authentic characters
  • Identifying internal conflicts of your characters
