Story Grid opened up a whole new world for me

I just binged all the episodes, and listening to Tim's journey on fast-forward has been eye-opening. I grew up believing that since I couldn't sit down and write a great story on my first attempt, that I wasn't creative. That I wasn't born with the ability to write fiction. Now I know beyond a doubt that I can do it if I really want to. It will just be really, really hard, and I'll want to quit along the way. But listening to Shawn mold Tim into a solid writer, and listening to him talk Tim off the ledge several times, has given me the confidence that I can use the Story Grid resources and write my own fiction (with the help of a Story Grid editor!). So thanks!

Shawn Coyne & Anne Hawley opened my eyes

I’ve read Shawn’s book, The Story Grid: What Good Editors know. It was educational and a little overwhelming. However, the Masterwork Experiment episodes of this podcast are like having Shawn and Anne sit with me at my kitchen table and help me understand story. They’re thorough but not pedantic. Coyne is the seasoned editor (Coyne’s publishing career is legendary), Hawley is the seasoned author. They are smart, kind, insightful, wonderful teachers and a fabulous team. This is podcast gold.

A Godsend

As a new writer I eat up every word and learn a ton from every episode. This is the best way to get on track with your novel or any story idea. You get a huge bang for no bucks and less time than taking a class. I love you guys. Thank you, thank you! The book is my writing bible. But your conversations bring it to life.
