KidLit Tools Workshop: Inside-Out: Creating Believable Characters Through Emotion & Sensory Detail

Emotion and sensory detail are important aspects of creating believable characters and experiences and engaging readers. But how do you do that? This workshop will provide key methods and tools for layering emotional and sensory detail into your novel that will add depth to your characters and their world. The first half of this workshop will focus on infusing the story with emotion. The second half of the workshop will provide exercises for including sensory details in your fiction, using all five (make that six) senses.

Sharon likes to put the “work” in workshop, so come prepared to do some writing!
