Ep 163: The incredible 6-word writing reframe (with Roy Peter Clark)
In This Episode
I’m fortunate to live in a town, and share a favorite coffee shop, with Roy Peter Clark.
If you don’t know, Roy Peter Clark is “America’s Writing Coach”.
Best-selling author of Writing Tools (which you can listen to on iTunes for free) and several other ingestible deep dives into our craft.
I first met him while taking journalism classes at University of South Florida here in St. Petersburg.
He came to workshop our class a couple of times and blew me away…
He’s the best there is at making the oft-times tortured art of writing feel fun, without compromising the credibility of his teaching.
In this episode, Roy breaks down a simple 6-word sentence from the classic Macbeth to show you the impact of the words you use.
It’s incredible how he can teach such a seemingly simple lesson and make it feel like a revolution for your writing.
So, enjoy this special episode with Roy Peter Clark, and keep writing short.
We’ve never had less time to make a big impact…
