Story Coach and Author of Wired for Story and the forthcoming Story Genius



Novelist, book coach and chief creative officer of Author Accelerator

NEXT Course begins in october

The Story Genius 10-week course 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. In the Story Genius Writing Workshop, we will teach you how to KNOW the answers to these questions, so you can write with confidence.

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).
— Laraine Herring

This is a unique opportunity to learn Lisa Cron's Story Genius method in a workshop format. It's the "how to" follow-up to her bestselling book, Wired for Story, which used brain science to debunk many of the writing myths that tend to derail writers and revealed what the brain is hardwired to hunt for in every story it hears.

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!
— Carol Van Den Hende

  • A 10-week course filled with lessons, exercises, feedback and community
  • Access to a private classroom and private Facebook group
  • Weekly video lessons – many more than an hour long
  • Weekly assignments – we take you step-by-step through exactly what to do
  • Weekly feedback from your book coach – turn in your workbook and get edits, comments, feedback and support within 72 hours

This is the most substantive process I’ve ever been part of. It’s tough, but I’m loving it.
