Breathe life into characters—from protagonist to minor players. The same techniques that actors use to prepare for a role can be adapted to intensify emotion and enhance authenticity on the page. Character interviews and other brainstorming activities will initiate creative thought and foster unexpected insight. These and other tools can be used at any point in the process—from preplanning to final revision. 

Come expecting to  write!

Katherine Longshore
