Upcoming Opportunities to Develop Your Characters
WorkshopBook Passage, that wonderful bookstore just north of San Francisco, CA, is once again allowing me to offer my character development workshop:
Grow A Great Character
10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Sat., June 9
51 Tamal Vista Blvd.
Corte Madera, CA (directions)
The California Writers Club San Francisco/Peninsula Branch has done an amazing job of scheduling writers and book professionals who will offer a variety of presentations at the Galleria Literary Fine Arts Stage of the San Mateo Fairgrounds in San Mateo, CA, during the San Mateo County Fair June 9 - 17.
Here's the info for my presentation:
Growing Great Characters From the Ground Up
2 - 3 p.m. Sun., June 10
Galleria Literary Fine Arts Stage
San Mateo County FairgroundsAnd and Offer for All You Blogging Writers
If you'd like me to write about character development for your blog, let me know. I'm happy to offer answers to questions or troubleshoot problems. Simply poll your blog followers about what they'd like to know about or issues they're having with their own characters, send me a list, and I'll send you my responses to post.
I'm a writing junkie looking for other writing junkies who are in this gig for the cool of it. People striving to be better writers because that's where their minds fly. I've accrued any number of writing credentials: author of "Growing Great Characters From the Ground Up: A Thorough Primer for the Writers of Fiction and Nonfiction"; writer of short stories published in Watchword, the Berkeley Fiction Review, Iconoclast and other literary journals; journalist of hundreds of articles for such publications as the Chicago Tribune and Inside Karate Magazine; playwright of a play produced in Hollywood. But what I'm looking to create now is a safe haven for writers where they can forget the brutality of the publishing world for awhile and help one another jump literature to a new level. If you're that person, or would like to be, welcome.
