Finding Your Character’s Voice: Workshop @ Avid Reader @ Avid Reader Bookstore
May 24 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Join me for an informative and fun workshop about characterisation: a mix of writing exercises, examples and discussion, with plenty of handouts and take-home information.

This workshop will focus on:

* characterisation and how it is related to plot, setting and themes
* how to build resilient characters
* how to use dialogue, movement, behaviour, backstory and childhood memories to build believable characters
* love, lies and loss
* how to evoke emotion in your reader
