The Story Genius Method 10-Week Novel-Writing Workshop will teach you to write a novel that captivates, delivering what your reader’s brain is wired to crave and respond to in every story it hears. Forget GUESSING where to start, where to end, or how to navigate the long road in between. Through weekly video/audio lessons, action-oriented assignments, personalized editorial feedback from a dedicated book coach, and rigorous, encouraging mentorship, we will teach you how to KNOW, and write with confidence.

This workshop is the “how to” follow-up to Wired for Story, which used brain science to debunk many of the longstanding writing myths that had forever been derailing writers and revealed what the brain is hardwired to hunt for in every story it hears. It follows the method laid out in, Story Genius: How to Go Beyond Outlining and Write a Riveting Novel I teach this online intensive workshop with my friend and colleague JENNIE NASH, who is the author of four novels, my own book coach, and chief creative officer of Author Accelerator. 


What do you mean by personalized editorial feedback?

We host the workshop over at the Author Accelerator website, because that's where the  book coaches live. These are some of the most compassionate, caring, and smart book coaches, and they will guide you through the Story Genius method, which they have been especially trained to do.

This has been more helpful than my MFA program by a zillion percent ... and about a zillion percent less expensive ... (and I loved my MFA program).

I just recommended the STORY GENIUS workshop to all 30 women at my writers’ group! I’m loving the experience, wise guidance, and individualized feedback. Jennie Nash and Lisa Cron, you and your editing team are doing a fabulous job!
