"What keeps a reader in the story?" 


Getting to Know Your Character through Passion, Purpose, and Place.

What keeps a reader in the story? In this workshop session, Kat will share strategies for creating well-developed characters. Infusing characters with passion, purpose and place will pull readers into the story and make them care about what happens to the characters. We'll work through some examples and attendees will leave with a better idea of who they're writing about.
