What's New at ACFW North Denver:
- Next meeting: Monday, August 11th
- Speaker: Carla Laureano, author
- Topic: Creating Complex Characters
If story structure is the skeleton of a work of fiction, then characters are its beating heart. Join us for an interactive workshop that will take you through tried and true methods for creating fictional characters of memorable depth and complexity. Learn how character back story can be tied into conflict to increase tension, find out how to use research to get into the head of a character, and leave with an arsenal of techniques that will guarantee your characters aren’t just constructs on the page, but living, breathing people.
