Online: Portland and Salem Chapters- Character with Eric Witchey

September 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Witchey Spoken Word Characterization Portland Salem

Join our Portland and Salem Chapters online this month with Eric Witchey.

On September 2nd from 7:00 to 8:30, award-winning author Eric Witchey will describe the relationships between several knowable character elements and word choice in dialog. Because characters manifest through their choices in the tactics they employ to pursue their immediate agendas, knowing what they want, why they want what they want, and how they feel in the moment of choice is extremely important when making decisions about word choice in revision. Alternatively, changing a word can have a profound impact on the reader’s perception of character, what they want, why they want what they want, and how they feel about what they want. Join us for this fun exploration of how every word is a tiny revelation of character.
