$15

with Betsy Dickinson

Calendar Nov 2, 2017 at 6:30 pm

Learn from a published author how to make the characters in your fiction writing a little more dysfunctional. Surmount the challenge of adding depth to a character’s profile so they better reflect the human condition of imperfection. Get out of your comfort zone and get down with victims and persecutors, martyrs and saviors. Discover how interactions and dialogue illustrate character quirks and keep readers on the edge of their seats. Bring paper and pen and prepare to practice.
