Character Sketch Part 1: Creating Authentic Characters (Virtual)

6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Event Details

Have you ever read a novel and hated the protagonist? I have, and an unlikeable protagonist can ruin stories and reader motivation. So how do we, as writers, create enjoyable, engaging main characters that will leave the reader wanting more? Simple enough. You give them flaws, challenges and, ultimately, allow them to transform. 

Join the first three weeks of this two-part virtual program where we will dig into character sketches of our characters and discover what makes them relatable, loveable, or not! 

This program is for serious writers, non-serious writers and everyone in between!
