Oh, Is That You? Get to Know Your Characters

J.E. Thomas, Author

We never get a second chance to make a first impression—or so it’s said. In this generative workshop, you’ll meet your protagonists, antagonists and key secondary characters in several settings. Get a new perspective on how they look, walk and talk. Study their facial expressions, hand movements and other physical quirks. We’ll read and discuss short excerpts—some as brief as a sentence or two—from character descriptions in middle grade and YA novels and intersperse those with hands-on exercises. Come prepared to write! Sharing is optional. Appropriate for all levels, but bring descriptions of at least three characters from a work-in-progress.
