Fiction writing is an ongoing practice, a habit that turns real-life experiences into imagined worlds and re-imagined spaces that are rich with story, voice, and imagery. In this webinar, the bestselling author of Birdie, Tracey Lindberg, reveals the beauty of storytelling and the practice of writing great fiction.

Creating Colourful Characters with Tanya Boteju

April 10, 2021 12:00 pm

Online

A drag queen who’s also an accountant. A seventeen-year-old who loves quiet nights reading in her hammock but also discovers her inner drag king. A greasy bully who has secrets no one would ever guess. Discovering the unexpected and complex in your characters is half the fun of writing stories. In this workshop, we’ll experiment and play with developing characters who spring off the page to surprise both you and your readers. Tanya will invite you to treat writing as discovery, lean into the unknown, and be okay with it when you topple over. Bring whatever you like to write with and a willingness to explore on the page.

This session will be followed by a Q&A.
