Writing with Writers:
Writing Unforgettable Suspense,
Plot, or Characterization?
Wednesday, May 30, 7 - 8:30 p.m.
Registration required (please see below)
Do you know if you’re writing mystery, suspense, or thriller? Does it matter? If you’re confounded or confused about your genre, you’re not alone.
In this hands-on workshop, twice-published author Karen Dodd will show you how to write an unforgettable story, regardless of genre, by creating characters with depth.
It’s often been said there are no new stories out there. That every novel is just an old story in a new package. True? Not if your characters are unique. It’s dynamic and evolving characters that create tension. That’s what makes your story “un-put-downable.” This is particularly relevant if you’re writing a series; strong characters will live in your readers’ heads long after they’ve finished your book.
Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and get a little “messy” as Karen destroys a few myths and guides you through techniques and exercises to craft your own three-dimensional, well-developed characters.
All are welcome. Registration required View in calendar and to register online
