About this event

Join Story Planet Toronto in this CharacterMaker workshop combining writing and drawing, as we explore what makes a compelling character. Participants will create an original character as a group, which will then be drawn on the spot by a professional illustrator. Accompanied by a discussion of what makes for compelling characters in literature, and what tips and tricks can be used to help bring the characters in our own stories to life.
