Writespace Workshop: "The Secrets of Effective Characterization" with K. J. Russell
When we write, it can be easy to stumble into the trap of creating characters we've come across before, but often these characters are stereotypes or caricatures. Populating a story with characters that seem unique and truly alive, that draw readers irrevocably into the story's fictive world can be a challenge.
In this workshop, K.J. Russell will teach you how to easily render fully formed characters so that every character, including your minor characters, becomes a chance to add flavor and life. You will learn what makes a character effective, the difference between a character and a caricature, and how to render a fascinating portrayal that takes seconds to write, yet stays with a reader for the length of your work.
