CHARACTER FEST: Crafting Compelling Characters

One of the biggest challenges for writers across the board, whether crafting creative fiction or short story, is to create authentic characters. Likeable or not, unrelatable and two-dimensional characters can often ruin a great plot or idea and slow down plotting and pacing, preventing readers from investing in the story.

Compelling characters, on the other hand, can draw the reader in, create interest, smooth over plot defects, and keep your story moving along.

Join us as we spend a full day delving into the depths of crafting compelling characters with a series of panels and seminars with award-winning writers, psychologists, body language experts and more. Immerse yourself in the world of personality ticks and tricks,  learn how to create empathy for your characters and engage your readers, and discover how body language can be translated onto the page.
