2018 Gold Rush Writers Conference

Your Imaginary Friends

Karen Joy Fowler

Karen Joy Fowler Some writers have characters who come to life in helpful ways, tell their story, and whisper their narratives into the writer's ear. This workshop is not for those characters.

This workshop is for the recalcitrant, the guarded or uninteresting or vague; the characters who are not helping at all.
Through a series of exercises, we will try to shake them loose and shape them up. Participants should come with one of their own characters already in mind, not necessarily a protagonist, but definitely someone who needs a good talking to.
