About This Workshop

Characters who readers tell their friends about. Characters who stay with you long after you’ve put the book down. Every writer wants their characters to resonate with their readers, but too often the gulf between your character sheet and what gets on the final page is too wide.    

If you’ve gotten feedback that all of your characters sound the same, or that your characters aren’t distinct, there is hope. In this workshop, we will cover how to layer in distinct details in your characters’ personalities and depicting those details in character voice and action. Exercises will be provided for crafting the perfect voice for your characters, so that you can hear them in your mind as you write them onto the page in dialogue and point of view, allowing your readers to hear them, as well.
