Hooked on a Feeling: A Workshop with Paul Cavanagh
Sun, 6 November 2016, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST
An interactive workshop for readers and aspiring writers seeking insights into what makes writing good.
Led by Paul Cavanagh, internationally acclaimed author of After Helen and Missing Steps.
Successful authors draw us into the emotional life of their characters. But how do they do it? Hooked on a Feeling is a fun, interactive, two-hour workshop for up to 40 people that reveals three principles talented fiction writers follow to strike an emotional chord with their readers. Participants learn what makes a story emotionally engaging by taking a guided tour of selected passages written by noted authors.
The Workshop is led by Paul Cavanagh, an internationally acclaimed novelist based in London, Ontario. He’s been compared to Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ann Tyler for his ability to be at turns funny and moving while exploring the paradoxes of modern family relationships. Irish Examiner called his first book, After Helen, “an absorbing and deeply touching debut … a whirlwind of a novel that, once started, is incredibly difficult to put down.”
