Meeting the Character of Your Heart: A Fiction Writing Workshop for Teens
March 22, 2017, 02:00 p.m.to 05:00 p.m.
About this Event:
At the heart of every great story there is a strong character compelling the reader to turn the page, but it is the writer who meets that character first. We invent them, yes. But one joy of fiction writing is letting them surprise us. Here’s an invitation to come discover the deepest truths of the character you want to write with local author Leslie Connor.
The workshop will be intense, fun, and fairly fast-paced. We’ll focus on getting out of our own way, letting that character’s voice get inside our ear, and discovering the heart of their story. You’ll leave with a “character toolkit” and your mind bubbling with scenes that beg to be written.
Refreshments will be served!
Free and open to all students in grades 7 to 12. Please register online at www.guilfordfreelibrary.org, over the phone or in person at the reference desk.
