Redwood (Zoom): How to Evoke Emotion in Every Scene

January 15, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

How to Evoke Emotion in Every Scene
with Jordan Rosenfeld

From fast-paced thrillers to contemplative literary novels and everything in between, readers need to connect to your characters to create a page-turning story. Emotion is the thread that binds readers to your characters’ experiences. This session will help you use sensory cues, powerful imagery, character demonstration, and other tools to evoke the emotion that hooks readers and creates deep, compelling characters.

Jordan Rosenfeld is author of the novels Women in Red and Forged in Grace and six books on the craft of writing, most recently How to Write a Page-Turner, the bestselling Make a Scene, Writing the Intimate Character, A Writer’s Guide to Persistence, Writing Deep Scenes and Write Free. Her freelance articles and essays have been published in hundreds of publications, including The Atlantic, The New York Times, Scientific American, Writer’s Digest Magazine, The Washington Post, and many more. She is also a freelance manuscript editor, writing coach, and teaches online classes. Visit
