The Hidden Gems Author Podcast

Episode 16 – Breaking Down the Craft of Writing

Hosted by: Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme with special guest Stefan Emunds

Writing is often described as a craft, not an art, and the most successful writers are those who constantly hone that craft. To that end, we’re excited to welcome Stefan Emunds to this week’s episode of Fully Booked to discuss what he learned during his journey to becoming a writer.

After struggling initially to find success with his visionary fiction books, Stefan went back to the drawing board and studied fiction writing from the ground up – identifying the “Eight Crafts” essential for grabbing a reader’s attention and getting them invested in your character’s journey. In fact, Stefan became so well versed in the subject that he wrote a book about these crafts, and teaches a course about them as well. In this podcast, Craig and Roland ask Stefan to give a high-level explanation of what these “crafts” are and talk about the transformative effect they can have on the stories you tell.
