Content Development with a Twist
Tribal College Journal
By Ryan Winn, CMN Faculty


Ryan Winn

The best writing instills a sense of urgency that compels readers forward. An engaging author builds anticipation, adds unexpected twists, and challenges assumptions. Reading a captivating story draws writers to their craft, and by dissecting how an author hooks us, we can better appreciate how these verbal magicians create their absorbing works—and learn how to hook readers ourselves.
