Workshop Title: Creating Lifelike Characters in Fiction
2:00pm Saturday, February 11
In this workshop, Michigan author Kevin Fitton will describe principles for creating characters who feel like real people. He will use examples from his own work along with some of the great contemporary writers. Workshop participants will be given the opportunity to practice new skills and incorporate lessons into their own projects.
Cost $35 includes a signed copy of Kevin’s new collection of short stories: “Auras”.
Kevin is an author from Grand Ledge, Michigan. who does creative writing education for youth through the National Writers Series in Traverse City, and a PhD candidate in creative writing at Western Michigan.
Sign up below for the workshop.
At 4:00pm Kevin will do a reading and signing of his new collection of stories, “Auras”.
The twelve stories that make up Auras span time from the 1940’s to the present day. They cover ground from New England to the Midwest to the South. But in another respect, all of these stories live in the same place, asking a different version of the same question: Is it possible to fix broken things?
