Create Compelling Characters: A Four-Part Series

What makes To Kill a Mockingbird’s Atticus Finch or The Color Purple’s Celie so engaging? Through readings, discussions, and writing exercises, we’ll explore the fundamentals of crafting multidimensional characters. You’ll learn to create characters from the inside out, enlivening them with distinct personalities and voices. And you’ll take away strategies to create real, dynamic, and diverse characters! Open to writers of all levels.

This is a four-part writing series and attendance at all sessions is requested. Registration for the first session will automatically register you for the whole series.

Instructor, Alex Sanchez, has published eight novels with Simon & Schuster, including the American Library Association “Best Book for Young Adults” Rainbow Boys and Lambda Award-winning So Hard to Say. His novel Bait won the Tomas Rivera Mexican-American Book Award and the Florida Book Award Gold Medal for Young Adult fiction. Now he’s at work on a graphic novel for DC Comics. He has a master’s in guidance and counseling and worked for many years as a youth and family counselor. Find out more at www.AlexSanchez.com
