How To Write an Allegory With Jordan Gross

Would you like to write an allegory?

An allegory is basically a story that reveals a hidden meaning or moral. One great example is *The Alchemist* by Paulo Coelho. An allegory is necessarily as long as a novel, but it should leave the reader with an understanding of a key concept or idea.

An allegory is a little like self-help, except in the vein of a story.

Jordan Gross is author of the allegory The Journey to Cloud Nine and a TEDx speaker. He's also a prolific non-fiction Medium writer.

In this interview, Gross explains:

  • The problems with traditional self-help books today
  • Why he veered away from this genre
  • How to write an allegory
  • What it took to land a TEDx speaking gig
  • How he's selling copies of his new book through public speaking  

And lots more.

I started by asking Jordan why he decided to write the allegory The Journey to Cloud Nine in the first place

Resources

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
