Bring Characters to Life in Your Fiction

Bring Characters to Life in Your Fiction


Well-drawn characters captivate readers and add spark to stories and novels. Learn how to develop intriguing characters, create authentic dialogue, and put characters into motion. Topics will include naming characters, showing relationships between characters, and depicting characters that are different from yourself (age, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, etc.). Participants will come away with actionable skills that improve the quality of their writing.
