Eliciting Emotion: How to Hook your Reader’s Heart
In this one-hour workshop, we analyze practical advice about how to get readers to connect with your story from the outset through well-crafted characters, story tension, Deep POV, sensory details, symbols and motifs, and prose that will keep them invested long after they put the book down.
