The publishing experts we follow have plenty of craft advice to offer. 

Here are the ones that we thought were can't-miss for our authors:

  • What makes timeless fiction timeless: Stories that feature compelling, memorable characters will endure, no matter how much the external details of their era change, says Donald Maass (Writer Unboxed).

  • Bringing characters to life on the page: Helpfully, editor Tiffany Martin Yates has a new piece out on how to reveal a character by showing, not telling (Writer's Digest).

  • Using clothes to characterize: A character's appearance — but the kind that they choose, rather than are born with — is another great way to unveil what's inside, and Becca Puglisi explains how (Writers Helping Writers).

  • We're trying to break their hearts: Author Matthew Norman shares his strategies for delivering as much emotion in fiction, with the greatest power, as he can (Writer Unboxed).
