Writing Immersive Fiction
Ever wondered why some books are more successful than others? It has nothing to do with the quality of writing, or whether you have a high concept story or not. No, it simply depends on how immersive your story is on every page.

Come learn the building blocks of immersive fiction, constructing your fictive dream brick by brick, using tools such as the Motivation-Reaction Unit, the use of all senses, and more.
