    The Essence of Story

    Often beginning, intermediate, and even advanced writers confuse anecdote for storytelling, which can result in a collection of scenes rather than a fulfilling narrative stronger than the sum of its parts. Identify the essence of powerful storytelling, and channel this power through a manuscript that meets its full potential.

    Mat Johnson is the author of the novels Loving Day, Pym, Hunting in Harlem, and Drop; the nonfiction novella The Great Negro Plot; and the graphic novels Incognegro, Dark Rain, and Right State. Until 2000, Johnson was a regular columnist for Time Out New York magazine. In 2007, Johnson was named the first USA James Baldwin Fellow by the United States Artists Foundation.
