Showing Not Telling

I'm a writer, aren't I supposed to tell? The key to great fiction. A one-hour video presentation.

Editors are constantly instructing novelists "Show Don't Tell!" What does that mean?

In this one-hour video webinar with host Kathy Ide, Randy Ingermanson goes into considerable detail about this key issue in writing fiction.

Accompanied by nearly 30 Power Point slides you can read the details of what he is discussing for yourself.

If you've never studied this before or need a refresher, this course is a must.

Originally recorded in 2014 as part of The Bestseller Society. The society's content is now an integrated part of The Christian Writers Institute.
