About David Farland

As a college student studying pre-medical microbiology, David Farland was torn. He also wanted to be a writer. Eventually, the desire to write became too overwhelming and he gave in. Today Dave shares his knowledge and expertise with writers around the world through his #WritingTip articles, books on writing and various online and live lectures and workshops.

Seeing his students take their own stories to greatness has become one of Dave’s greatest joys in life. Not only does he love sharing the lessons he’s learned from a lifetime of empirical study, he excels at diagnosing story problems and prescribing the right course of treatment for ultimate success.

About his life, Dave says, “I seem to have become a writer who now works as a doctor on the side—a story doctor.”

In this workshop we will work heavily on imbuing your prose with the richness and details that bring a story to life. The goal is to teach you how to fully transport readers as you take them on a journey that captivates their hearts and minds. David Farland will teach you how to totally transport you readers so that they become so immersed in your story, they forget where they are--they forget they are reading at all.

This workshop is similar to the Writing Mastery workshop, but will be more exercise-oriented, with in-class practices. Writing Enchanting Prose is more in-depth than any of David's past prose workshops.
