Session: How to Emotionally Reach your Readers

Audience: All Levels

It's not enough to get a reader to pick up our books. We also have to reach them emotionally in order to keep them reading past the first chapter and to inspire them to tell their friends about our stories. The good news is, people are communal in nature. We are hard-wired to connect emotionally with one another, and authors can exploit that wiring with our storytelling by keeping our stories dialogue-centric.

By the end of this session, you will learn:

  • how humans connect with one another emotionally and how they can exploit that desire for connection with their writing
  • how to write a dialogue-centric story
  • how to build character partnerships that cause the reader to feel a sense of community
