Bring Your Writing to Life

A Writer's Guide to "Show; Don't Tell"

Authored by Amy Michelle Wiley

In this easy-to-use workbook, Amy Michelle Wiley shows you how to bring your writing to life. Instead of telling the simple facts of the story, you will learn how to immerse your reader in the action so they are experiencing the events and full range of emotions along with the character.

Amy teaches the technique commonly called "show, don't tell" with lots of concrete examples so you know exactly what to do and what to avoid. She covers a range of topics, including the use of adjectives and adverbs, dialogue tags, point of view, and descriptive language. Each section ends with a short worksheet to practice the skills yourself.

This guide is perfect for writers who want to hone their skills, or for teachers to use in the classroom.
