Generalizations, weak verbs, and vague terminology can rob even the strongest stories of their impact, driving away readers and agents alike.

Having a brilliant plot, relatable characters, or an exciting idea is not enough. You must know how to pick the perfect words to create sensory experiences and emotional connections with your readers.

From memoir to horror, romance, and thrillers, and from literary nonfiction to fantasy, sci-fi/spec, and mysteries, crafting evocative prose is essential to writing stories readers can’t put down—and recommend to their friends.

Discover how to pick perfect words, learn how to minimize adverbs and maximize impact, explore the power of active verbs, and master the art of metaphors with the help of my five-step Metaphor Machine.

You’ll leave the webinar equipped with actionable strategies to create compelling, evocative prose that resonates in the hearts and minds of your readers and keeps them turning pages long into the night.
