This workshop for new novel writers will offer exercises and discussion about creating and developing characters. We’ll focus on protagonists, but look at secondary characters as well. Along the way we’ll talk about point of view, setting, and other aspects of novel-writing. This workshop will provide a supportive environment for writers who have begun their project and want to keep making progress.

Writers who have taken the “How to Start Your Novel” workshop are very welcome, but that class is not a prerequisite.

Please note the following workshop requirements:

  • Limit one ticket per purchase.
  • Any tickets purchased at the member price require a current Just Buffalo membership.
