"Writing Great Characters," Saturday, July 23, Toronto, Ontario


The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo - now there's a character!
How to find and create great characters
Saturday, July 23
10 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
The World's Biggest Bookstore, 20 Edward St, Toronto
(A block north of Dundas, just west off Yonge St. Map here.)

Whatever you're writing – fiction or nonfiction – readers will care about your story only if they care about your people. In this workshop, you'll learn techniques for creating fictional characters and depicting real people. You’ll learn how to breathe life into the page so that your characters start telling you how the story should go.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He teaches at Ryerson University and has led creative writing workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Charlottetown. But his proudest boast is that he's helped many of his students get published.
