Creating Memorable Characters in Middle Grade Fiction (Online event)


February 23, 2022, 7:00pm

Every author has the same ambition: for readers to become totally immersed in your book and connect with the cast of characters you’ve created, following their every step and then imagining their lives beyond the final page.

Join me for this workshop dedicated entirely to the craft of creating complex characters that strike a chord with your intended readership, and insight into the art of developing character arcs. This session makes up part of the Writers & Artists Children’s & YA Fiction Festival 2022, and attendees can expect a practical session involving writing exercises and discussion. 30 minutes will also be reserved for Q&A.
