About Charles Euchner
Charles Euchner — the author or editor of a dozen books who has taught writing at Yale and directed a think tank at Harvard — is the creator and principal of The Writing Code.
In the past three years, Euchner has published a series of books on writing and civil rights. His three books on writing — The Writing Code, The One-Minute Writer, and Write the Book — offer a complete system for all genres. Now available only on Amazon, these and other works will be available on all book platforms and in pulp form by fall.
Euchner’s newest narrative book is Nobody Turn Me Around (Beacon Press, 2010), an intimate account of the 1963 March on Washington. Based on more than 100 interviews and thousands of pages of archival materials, Nobody Turn Me Around offers the only complete study of the only moment when all of the factions of the civil right’s movement gathered in one place, a day capped by Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” oration.
The Writing Code taps into people’s existing skills to teach first storytelling, then technique, and finally analysis. By using storytelling as the template, The Writing Code makes technical and abstract aspects of writing easier. The Writing Code provides a complete inventory of skills needed to become a proficient writer, with simple explanations and exercises to master each.
