Dan Barden started writing to impress girls.
Like many college students, he took something that he thought he was good at and used it to get dates. He credits his ability to craft catchy stories with attracting the attention of his wife, Elizabeth.
But along the way, he discovered the value of taking something from his imagination and putting it to the page.
Now he’s sharing his tips. The Indianapolis author has found added benefit from training the next generation of writers to hone their craft. After two published books and a career as a creative writing professor at Butler University, he believes his insight can help others realize the novels, short stories and other works that they have inside of them.
