Finding the Emotional Heartbeat of Your Characters

We want characters that live on long after we’ve closed the book, characters that linger in our hearts and minds. This is an interactive session designed to help you create depth and emotional resonance within your writing. You will learn how to mine the crowds of people around you for inspiration, and how to add layers of identity for complexity. You will use tips and exercises to display personality traits that move the action of your plot along, while tugging at the emotions of your readers.
