SUPER CLASS: Story Showing vs Story Telling


by Lori Wilde

January 2–26, 2018
Prerequisite: Must be actively engaged in writing a book.

“Show don’t tell” is the mantra given in most beginning writing courses. But two things are wrong with this universal piece of writing advice. First, there are times when “telling” is preferable to “showing” and secondly, many authors have no idea when they are telling versus showing. This course is designed to address those oversights. Lori developed it after many years of working with students and realizing they often had no idea what was “showing” and what was “telling.” She believes this crucial skill can quickly shoot an author to the next level of success. Story Showing students learn:

  • The difference between showing and telling
  • When to show and when to tell
  • The four critical elements that “show” story
  • Showing subtext through action and dialogue
  • Techniques for showing a three-dimensional story
  • Inner narrative versus inner dialogue/monologue
  • How to identify author intrusion
  • The essentials of showing, telling and pacing
