Wired for Story: The Writer’s Guide to Using Brain Science to Hook Readers From the Very First Sentence by Lisa Cron is packed with advice on captivating the reader. Learn exactly what you need to know about your characters’ pasts—what you can skip, how to set readers up for a satisfying payoff, and why outlining is a good thing. There’s nothing dry or vague in Lisa Cron’s writing as she guides you expertly through creating a story with maximum impact. Participants will learn the fascinating explanations of how the brain processes story and discuss practical applications for their own writing.
Participants will meet on the first date to get to know one another and discuss an overview of their book, spend the month reading, and return on February 21 for a final discussion.
