A Workshop for Fiction and Non-Fiction Writers!
For Fiction and Non-Fiction Writers!
Creating Characters That Come to Life Before Your Eyes – and Ears!

A fantastic workshop presented by Jeanne McCafferty at idiomART on Thursday.

9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The morning session will explore your character’s detailed bio worksheet and backstory and how those details translate into your prose. How do they help build unique and memorable characters? The afternoon session will focus on writing realistic dialogue that captures the way people really talk. Listening, watching, and writing exercises will build the skills needed for you to become your readers’ eye (and ears) in every scene. You’ll leave this class with new skills and new tools that will help bring new life to your writing.

The cost is $49. The workshop is limited to 12 people — reservation confirmation on a first-come-basis with a Cash or PayPal payment. Email to secure your spot!
