Bring Characters to Life in Your Fiction

Free Writing Workshop

The Lewes Public Library and Browseabout Books Present “Bring Characters to Life in Your Fiction”

Well-drawn characters captivate readers and add spark to stories and novels. Nancy Sakaduski will teach workshop participants how to develop intriguing characters, create authentic dialogue, and put characters into motion. Topics include naming characters, showing relationships between characters, and depicting characters that are different from yourself (age, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, etc.). Participants will come away with actionable skills that improve the quality of their writing.

Nancy Day Sakaduski is an award-winning writer and editor who owns Cat & Mouse Press. She runs the annual Rehoboth Beach Reads Short Story Contest and helps writers prepare their short stories for publication.
