From your POV character to secondary characters to antagonists, all the people in your fiction are important.
They need to rise up from the page and connect with your readers: excite them, horrify them, disappoint them, delight them. In short, characters must have emotional impact.
Join author Ruth E. Walker to explore and experiment with:
~ how characters enhance the themes in your stories
~ when and where dialogue is a game-changer
~ the subtleties of description for greatest benefit
~ how to deepen character motivation and desires
This workshop is not geared for writers just starting out. Bring your in-progress characters and a willingness to stretch them and you over the course of the day.
