41. Nailing it: Define Your Character from the Opening Chapter – WS

October 1, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

NovelistMichelle Berry gives useful pointers about the fundamentals of a good opening chapter, and then moves on to how to explain how to develop great characters that leap off the page. She’ll assign a fun exercise: participants interview one another (questions will be provided) and then create an opening scene with a character that is based on the person you interviewed and in which you incorporate what you learned at the start of the class about openings. Come prepared to participate and write! Limited enrolment 

12:00 – 2:30 pm
