A "Best of Shut Up & Write!" workshop.
Wed. Feb 6, 6:30-9pm, $45
(snow date Feb 20)
Characters are at the heart of writing. Whether people or parrots, real or imagined, alive or dead, principals in novels or case histories in how-to books, characters are the prime drivers of the written word. You write your best when you get to know them before you begin
In this workshop, you learn how to use your memories and imagination to flesh out characters so they seem fully alive to you. When you know how they look, sound, feel, taste and smell; when you "see" them sitting across the table or dancing in the moonlight, you are ready to bring them to life on the page.
Workshop meets in RedBird-RedOak classroom
