We have an upcoming online workshop coming up on Friday, March 22 at 12pm EST

The Heart Wants What It Wants: How to Make Readers Fall in Love With Your Characters with editor Tiffany Liao 

"With every book I edit, I always start with one big question: What does the character want? Your character motivation is the heart of the story and will inform every element in your book including voice, plot, pacing, and world-building. I'll show you how to dig deep into your character to establish a motivation that is compelling, believable, and urgently drives the story forward from page to page." -Tiffany Liao

We'll be doing in-class exercises, but attendees are encouraged to bring the first page of their works-in-progress. 

Tiffany Liao is an editor at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers. She is a great presenter. We had her at our Falling Leaves retreat last year and she was a crowd favorite! 

$15 for members
$39 for non-members
