Workshop Objectives

In this workshop, I aim to cover the fundamentals of developing characters in fiction and dialogue writing. The participants will be exposed to various issues regarding the techniques and art of character building using various literary tools.

Workshop overview

Participants will undergo a multitude of writing exercises, and will be exposed to a number of children’s and young adult books to look into the characters and how they evolve throughout the story.

Each participant will work building his/her characters for the purpose on using them in a specific writing project they are developing or aim to develop. I will follow the participants’ works individually during the workshop in order to provide maximum output.

Follow up sessions are recommended so participants will have the chance to get their stories to be reviewed and edited, and eventually published.
