Thursday, February 20th 6:30pm-9:00pm
$40 class alone/ $31.25 if taken as a set
The ideal novel combines both a strong plot and genuine characters readers will connect with, but it is often difficult to find the ideal ending. This creative writing workshop will provide techniques for developing strong characters, the thematic meaning in the characters’ experiences, and discovering how character development and plot points work together drive the story to a satisfying conclusion.
