Master Class in Character: More than Flesh and Bones

Master Class in Character: More than Flesh and Bones

From your POV character to secondary characters to antagonists, all the people in your fiction are important.

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.
