“Stories are the way we know ourselves, and the way we know other people.” – Nicola Yoon
At a time when divisiveness and polarity seem at their all-time highs, the stories we tell matter more than ever. Stories contain the power to lift us up during our most difficult moments, and unite people around shared values and ideas. So what contributes to an effective story? And what makes a skilled storyteller?
Nicola Yoon is here to discuss just that.
As part of CreativeLive’s Between the Lines interview series, hosted by Kelly Corrigan, we hear the stories behind the stories with 16 of the world’s top authors. Nicola is the #1 NYT Bestselling Author of Everything, Everything, which is now a major motion picture, and The Sun Is Also a Star, a National Book Award finalist, Michael L. Printz Honor Book and Coretta Scott King New Talent Award winner.
Nicola expounds on a number of relevant and important topics such as:
- Storytelling as a means of understanding others
- Creative inspiration and Nicola’s writing process
- Difference between fiction and non-fiction stories
- The importance of gestures in stories
- How to make the familiar strange again
