Event description

Description

Good character development is a critical part of writing both fiction and non-fiction (and can also be surprisingly relevant to poetry!). This workshop by Man Booker Prize nominee Alison Pick will help you get to know the characters you are writing about in new and fun ways. Come prepared to brainstorm, to play games, to write hard, and to learn how understanding your characters deeply can take your writing project to a whole new level.

Alison Pick

Her memoir, Between Gods, was published internationally, was a finalist for the BC National Award for Non-Fiction, and was a Globe and Mail “Best Book” of 2014.
