Character development is essential to certain types of writing, including memoirs and character-driven novels and short stories. Character revelation is tricky, and too often done in "information" or "backstory" dumps. Not very satisfying. ("Oh here it comes - the backstory....")
This workshop will help you understand how to find or create the dynamic element within your people, real or imagined. If you want to improve your character skills, this workshop is for you.
Preregistration is required.
Registration deadline: August 19, 2017
