Brandon Sanderson teaches how to write SF/F novels.

Brandon wrote the Mystborn book series and, if I'm not mistaken, finished the last book in the Wheel of Time series. I haven't read any of these books, but the guy knows his craft and it's a great teacher. It's a pleasure to listen to people getting into the nuts and bolts of storytelling.

There are playlists to all the 13 lectures. Enjoy!


Why do all the students look like white bread mid-western males? ...oh this is Brigham Young University. God, those haircuts. Looks like he's lecturing to an ROTC class. Here's a good book to read: "Under the Banner of Heaven" by Jon Krakauer

Good advice. Thanks, good post!
