Creating Authentic Fictional Characters

Cathy LeMay will return to the library to give another valuable writing workshop, “Creating Authentic Fictional Characters.” Cathy gave a workshop at the library last November about breaking through writer’s block and writing your first novel, and she’s returning by popular demand. In this workshop, learn about and discuss writing tips to help you breathe life into your fictional characters, making them feel real and memorable. Your characters should be the soul of your story, so by giving your readers characters with whom they can connect, they will return to your books again and again.

Space is limited in this popular workshop, so call 781-769-0200 x110 or email to sign up
