Workshop – Crafting Authentic Character with Helen Scheuerer

8th February 2017 @ 10:00am - 11:45pm

Really broken

Crafting believable, 3-D characters in fiction is a difficult art form that many new writers rush through while they’re caught up in their plot. This workshop will explore how to make your characters distinctive and memorable, how to deal with internal and external conflicts, motivations and backstory, as well as how to manage a cast of characters and their relationships with one another.
Building on her personal experience as a novelist and an editor, author Helen Scheuerer will discuss common character mistakes she sees in manuscripts, and what tools writers can use to avoid these.
Participants are asked to bring a short piece of writing (either a short story or an excerpt from a novel) that focuses on character.
Cost: Workshop – Members $30.00 Non Members $35.
Bookings: Monday 6/2/2017 before 10.00am
