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.
