Free* Spring Day Retreat
Secret Thoughts: An Inside View of Character

Saturday, April 7, 9:00-4:00, Beverly Lake, Everett
What is my character hiding and how do I avoid showing too much? How can I make my characters’ actions believable and not just be a master puppeteer? How do I bring up the past without my story being one big flashback or a massive info-dump?
In our relaxing lake oasis, we’ll explore authentic Point of View. Plenty of writing time between craft sessions, as well as group critique. *The workshop is free to all who are registered for any of Katherine’s Spring classes, as well as all of Katherine’s coaching clients. To sign up, forward proof of registration to founder(at)epicwrite(dot)org. You will receive a discount code that will bring the cost of the retreat to $0. (limit 15 )
