We’re doing things a little differently this year. Instead of a full day presentation on Saturday, our key presenter, Angela Ackerman, will be giving the same 3 hour presentation in the morning and the afternoon. We will be running other workshops at the same time, so you have choices on Saturday, too!
Here’s what Angela will be presenting – and you won’t want to miss it!
Winning the Reader’s Heart: Building Characters Who Are True to Life
What makes a compelling character, one that your readers can’t get enough of? This session looks at character creation, and how to explore the layers of humanity that ignite reader fascination & empathy. Learn how to ground a character in the real world by asking questions that get to the heart of who they are, and the wounds, fears, and needs that will drive them throughout the story.
If you want to gain a deeper understanding of what makes your character tick so you can write their every action, decision, and choice in a way that lines up with who they are, this is the workshop for you. This session includes time to work on your characters, so bring your current protagonist, antagonist or love interest for further development, or if you like, start planning someone new!
