Learn About Me
Hi, I’m John Matthew Fox, and I help authors write better fiction. Over the last ten years, through courses and editing, I’ve helped hundreds of authors publish their books and even win awards.
My website Bookfox has nearly 1,000 posts to help writers, and my books include “The Linchpin Writer: Crafting Your Novel’s Key Moments” and the short story collection “I Will Shout Your Name.”
I’ve been published by the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, and won fiction contests at Third Coast and Shenandoah.
Ask me a question?
John delivers another phenomenal course. Copious amounts of little known exercises combined with clear examples for the win. I cannot wait to try these techniques in my WIPs. One of my favourite courses ever (and I have taken plenty of them). Thanks, John!
John is a friendly and enthusiastic teacher, with interesting and often surprising examples from life or literature. Once I saw how useful these ideas were, I slowed down to write new or revised scenes for each lesson. A great course–thank you, John–I will use these techniques forever!
Writing Techniques helped to refresh my memory from my college days. I have enjoyed the course and it has helped me to remember how much I enjoyed writing while in college as an English major.
A lifetime after college I am now ready to see if I can write a novel.
I thought after the ‘splendid sentences’ course that it couldn’t get better but this course is equally brilliant! Not only do the exercises get you taxing your imagination and provide practical techniques to apply to your writing immediately, John pours himself into the course with such energy, enthusiasm and infectious honesty that you can’t help but reflect on yourself, and tap into your psyche for better, fresher and deeper writing. I just love it! Thank you John!
“I really enjoyed the course and I know I can use the lessons in my work. It was easy to understand and to follow, and also made story ideas fall into patterns that made lots of sense.”
John has a knack for curating the most impactful information, condensing it, then sharing it in an engaging way. This course definitely improved my writing.
This course hands you every tool you can use to enhance your characters in every possible way, from knowing how to give them quirky physical traits, to gestures they use that set them apart, how to make them reveal emotions, how to set scenes for character power imbalances, and a host of other in-depth topics. This is my fifth course with Bookfox, but as always, Mr. John Matthew Fox never disappoints. I’m super glad I did this course, and I recommend it wholeheartedly.
The beginning of the course points out the major flaws of the novice. I had them all. It was a comfort to accept my position and advance through the course. It is well organized into concise lessons, each centered around a specific writing technique. I would watch a presentation, and then take the quiz at the end. Next, I would go back to my work in progress and find where I could rewrite a portion using the newly acquired knowledge. I feel empowered by taking John’s course.
