Fiction Techniques to Make Your Nonfiction Book Stand Out, Joel Armstrong




Whether you’re editing Christian living, memoir, or Bible studies, story is an integral part of every nonfiction book. But storytelling must be done well or it will only detract from your author’s message. In this session, we’ll dig into storytelling techniques—such as “show don’t tell,” metaphor, story arc, dialogue, and narrative tension—and look at how to apply these techniques to specific nonfiction genres. With these examples on hand, we’ll conclude with a workshop and discussion time to start making your author’s book stand out from the crowd.
