Creating Compelling Characters

Ages: 16 plus

Venue: Ray Bradfield Room

Bookings: book at Writers Victoria

Sofie Laguna trained and worked as an actor for many years before writing books; her writing workshops are lively, dynamic and challenging.

In this workshop Sofie will focus on the different ways participants can create compelling characters for children. The workshop will open with a discussion about characters where Sofie will use her own work as a springboard to stimulate ideas, and to encourage students to identify memorable characters in their own reading history.

Participants will be asked to bring a 500-word dramatic monologue to the workshop, written in the voice of one of their characters. All participants will be encouraged to read out their work and receive constructive criticism.
