How to Write Great Characters   
~ A free seminar for teens ~
Tuesday, August 22
4:30 – 6:30 pm
Brentwood Library,
36 Brentwood Rd N, Etobicoke (Map here)

Whatever kind of story you're writing ~ fiction or nonfiction ~ readers need to care about your characters – or your readers won’t care at all. In this short seminar, we’ll aim at breathing life onto the page so that your characters start telling you how the story should go.

Workshop leader Brian Henry has been a book editor and creative writing instructor for more than 25 years. He publishes Quick Brown Fox, Canada’s most popular blog for writers, teaches creative writing at Ryerson University and has led workshops everywhere from Boston to Buffalo and from Sarnia to Saint John. But his proudest boast is that he has helped many of his students get their first book published and launch their careers as authors.

The seminar is free, but if you can, please email the Brentwood Library and tell Margaret Cardle you’re coming: mcardle@torontopubliclibrary.ca
