Writers’ Program instructor Lisa Cron’s recently published book, Wired for Story, topped amazon.com’s Movers and Shakers list, and is currently breaking the top 100 bestseller list!
Wired for Story digs into recent breakthroughs in neuroscience and relates them to storytelling: what the brain craves from every tale it encounters, what fuels the success of any great story, and what keeps readers transfixed. As Wp’ instructor Caroline Leavitt puts it, “If you can’t have (Lisa) by your side when you’re wrestling your manuscript, the next best thing is this smart, funny, genius book about the myths, realities and brass tacks of story. Packed with innovative tips and techniques, it’s as essential to any writer as a laptop, and much more fun.”
Lisa says, “This book got its start in the Writers’ Program. It began as lectures for an online class I was teaching and blossomed from there, thanks in no small part to the dedicated, incredibly insightful, amazingly talented students I’ve had the privilege to work with.”
