Flesh & Blood Characters: Writing Workshop (TPL Young Voices Program):

Toronto Reference Library Elizabeth Beeton Auditorium, 2:00-4:00pm

Characters make or break your fiction. It’s quite simple: readers will only read to the end if they care what happens to the people in the story, and they’re only going to care if those people feel real. In this hands-on writing workshop you’ll find out how Sarah Henstra crafted vivid, believable characters in her novel Mad Miss Mimic, and you’ll hear her practical strategies for bringing your own characters to life. You’ll have a chance to produce some brand-new writing from scratch, and you’ll learn about some common-but-deadly “character traps” and how to avoid them.

Ages 12-19
