The New Yorker Fiction Podcast

New Yorker Fiction Podcast

Non-fiction writers benefit by using the tools that
fiction writers use to craft a story that has a beginning, a middle, and an end (narrative arc), and to leave readers with the sense that they’ve gone on a journey. Non-fiction writers often make the mistake of chronicling every detail instead of storytelling. How do you hone your storytelling skills? Reading good stories is a good way, paying attention to the writer’s technique — suspense, character development, narrative arc. Listening to good stories is good, too. I love the New Yorker fiction podcast, a monthly reading and conversation between a different New Yorker writer each month with the New Yorker fiction editor, Deborah Treisman. Check it out.
