Story for Novelists

At a Glance

  • Will teach novelists how to get the maximum narrative drive in their stories
  • Understand every novelist's biggest story challenge
  • Write character POVs that don't bog down your story

Story for Novelists Webinar

For many years people have asked John Truby to do a class specifically designed for novelists. Many novelists believe that because they can go anywhere in the story, they should go everywhere, including into the minds of a number of characters. The result? A meandering story that quickly gets bogged down in details and grinds to a halt.

The Story for Novelists webinar shows novelists how to get maximum narrative drive in their stories, which is the single biggest determinant for success in popular storytelling today.

Over 90 jam-packed minutes, John Truby, along with award-winning author, essayist and UCLA Novel Writing instructor Leslie Lehr, takes you through the heart of what every novelist needs to know, including:

  • Understanding every novelist’s biggest story challenge
  • Story elements that kill narrative drive
  • 5 POVs and how they work
  • The benefits of multiple POV
  • Story challenges of multiple POV
  • Techniques for increasing narrative drive
  • Much more

The session will conclude with 30 minutes of Q&A.
