Deep POV: Tools to Make Your Character Come Alive for Readers

2022 August | Advanced Track

WHEN: August 1, 2022 – August 31, 2022 via GroupsIO

Course Description:

Make them laugh. Make them cry. Make them cheer your characters on. To do that, a writer must walk the walk and talk the talk of the characters populating the ms. 

Creating characters that resonate with readers will make your books an auto-buy. Learn to go more deeply under a character’s skin, to see what they see and feel what they do. Learn how emotions can show your story rather than tell it. Learn how to bring readers along with your characters so readers become such a part of the story they can’t put it down. Learn how to move from deep inside one character to another without pulling your reader away from the story. 

Through exercises and discussion, the course will guide each attendee to look more deeply into their characters by pushing aside the barriers that separate a good writer from a great one and a good ms from one that touches a reader’s heart.
