How to Evoke Emotion in Every Scene
From fast-paced thrillers to contemplative literary novels and everything in between, readers need to connect to your characters to create a page-turning story. Emotion is the thread that binds readers to your characters’ experience. Emotion must be demonstrated, not told, to the reader, and there are many powerful tools to do so without falling back on narrative short-cuts or blunt expressions of feeling. In this OnDemand Webinar, Jordan Rosenfeld brings her experience as an author of six books on the craft of writing, and three novels, to discuss writing compelling characters and expressing emotion without relying on overt sentiment or melodrama.
Jordan Rosenfeld is author of the novels Women in Red and Forged in Grace, and six books on the craft of writing, most recently How to Write a Page-Turner, the bestselling Make a Scene, Writing the Intimate Character, A Writer’s Guide to Persistence, Writing Deep Scenes, and Write Free. Her freelance articles and essays have been published in hundreds of publications, including: The Atlantic, The New York Times, Scientific American, Writer’s Digest Magazine, The Washington Post, and many more. She is also a freelance manuscript editor, writing coach and teaches online classes. Jordanrosenfeld.net and email@example.com.
