We all know stories have high impact. Great storytelling engages your reader and persuades your audience. Let bestselling fiction author Allie Pleiter show you how elements of fiction—dialogue, description, and characterization—can give your non-fiction writing power, sparkle, and the ability to stick with your reader.
Participants will learn:
– Where and when to use dialogue
– How much description is too much?
– Creating and using case-study characters
– The power of storytelling in non-fiction
Whether you write memoir, business, how-to, essay, or any other non-fiction, your work can have new vibrancy with techniques borrowed from your favorite novel.
An avid knitter, coffee junkie and firm believer that “pie makes everything better,” Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and non-fiction working on as many as four novels at a time. The bestselling author of over fifty books, Allie has enjoyed a twenty-year career with over 1.5 million books sold. In addition to writing, Allie maintains an active writing productivity coaching practice and speaks regularly on the creative process, publishing, and her very favorite topic—The Chunky Method of time management for writers. She also so-leads PAGES, a weekly group coaching program with Cathy Fyock.
