Creating Characters with Depth*
The driving force behind any story is the group of characters that inhabit it. In this workshop, we'll explore the key elements of compelling characters and what an author can do to bring them to life.
* This workshop is part of the Saturday YA Track. All YA Track workshops will be held in the same room to offer attendees a chance to build relationships with other YA writers.
In order to make the most of your 1:1 appointment, we recommend that you carefully review the faculty members' areas of expertise, needs, and requests to identify those best suited for your goals as a writer.
Area of expertise: Fiction, YA Fiction, co-writing
