Daniel José Older on Writing

An Online Skillshare Class by Daniel José Older

Whether you’re new to writing or have been doing it for years, this presentation by Daniel José Older is worth it for the first three minutes alone (there is a sign-in process for the entire lesson). As a farm kid who came to writing armed with a nursing degree and did much of my early writing in the moments between ambulance calls, I admit I’m predisposed to like Older’s take on how living your life is a critical–and often overlooked–key to powerful storytelling. And “powerful” doesn’t mean everything has to be loud as sirens; “powerful” is also found in those dead still interstitial moments in the wake of the sirens.

Anyway: Daniel José Older, right here.
