Characters in fiction writing are not just part of the story they must drive the narrative, so it is crucial to spend time developing full rounded characters that are compelling and believable.
In this short video presentation Sheila will talk about how to develop characters in creative fiction. For example, have they any unusual traits, how do they speak, their relationship with other characters. Most importantly she will talk about how as writers we must try not to judge our characters and allow them to be of their time and their place.
This presentation is for any young writers aged 13 to 18 that have an interest in developing their creative writing techniques. It will also focus on encouraging young writers to find their authentic voice when creating characters.
Sheila Forsey is an Irish Times Best Selling author of Historical Fiction and is published by Poolbeg Press.
