Part of the 2015 Conference Faculty Series
Just recently a writer friend of mine said, “We always worry if our characters come alive on the page.” What a great discussion point for my course at the Cape Cod Writers Center Conference, Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em: Create Great Characters. Of course by great, I mean unforgettable characters such as Scarlett O’Hara or Hannibal Lecter. I’ll bring lots of examples from literature but we’ll also examine your characters and provide tips for making them memorable. Writers of all levels are welcome and will benefit from my many tips and techniques.
At last year’s conference, my class was fun and lively and I am so excited to be asked back and to be teaching one of my favorite topics. I’m also teaching how to add the WOW factor to your writing. Sign up for both classes.
Have a great summer and I look forward to seeing you at the conference.
