Intensive: Fiction Fluency: Developing the Character of your Characters

Sunday, August 4
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
St. Helen’s A

Join us for this Sunday Intensive with Eric Witchey.

Characters don’t exist in isolation on the page. They interact with other characters, their environment, and themselves. Most importantly, they tacitly engage with the reader, who learns who your characters are, how they are, and how to feel about them entirely from what your characters do and say.

In this intensive workshop, award-winning author Eric Witchey will discuss how to develop the character of your characters so the reader pulls deeper understanding from the how and why of character behavior and dialog. You’ll explore the reader’s relationship to character, the psychological underpinnings of character, and how character dynamics change based on who is on stage at any given moment.

Sunday Intensives are small, focused workshops, limited to 15 writers, and presented by industry professionals. This Intensive is three hours long, and includes lunch. You must register to attend Sunday Intensives at an additional cost.

Please register here.
