Kate Cuthbert
A great plot, exotic setting, fantastic ideas – they all mean nothing if your reader doesn’t deeply feel all of the emotions in your story.

This full day course will teach tips, styles, and techniques to build emotional resonance into any story.

You will learn

  • how to fully develop characters
  • how to use different narrative techniques
  • different points-of-view: the who, how, and why
  • how to identify and correct areas of ‘telling, not showing’
  • how to build emotional tension and intensity into a manuscript.
