Inner Worlds: Bringing characters to life on the page. Great stories revolve around characters we care about. Readers connect with and care about characters who have a strong voice, thoughts and emotions, wants and desires, worries and fears. Getting inside your character’s head is so important to bringing them to life on the page. This workshop will focus on practical ways to build the internal world of your character. $15 Book Links members, $25 non-members | 12:30-2:00
