Write on the River Character Development Workshop

Starts Oct. 5, 2013, 1 p.m.
Ends Oct. 5, 2013, 3 p.m.


We all know what a well-rounded character reads like, but how do you develop one step-by-step within your novel? At Write on the River’s October 5 workshop, Moment by Moment Character Development, attendees will discuss the three layers of character and explore how to build a character through the use of scene, setting, dialog, and more. Attendees will also examine ways in which gesture, habit, and point-of-view can affect each character. And, the differences between walk-on characters, minor characters, and main characters will be addressed. Workshop speaker, Terry Persun, is the winner of a 2012 Silver IPPY Award for “Sweet Song,” set during the American Civil War. An Amazon bestselling novelist and a Pushcart nominee, he writes in many genres including historical fiction, mainstream, literary, and science fiction/fantasy. Terry’s latest poetry collection is “And Now This”. His novel, “Cathedral of Dreams” is a ForeWord magazine Book of the Year finalist in the science fiction category. His latest science fiction space opera is, “Hear No Evil”, his latest fantasy is “Doublesight”, and his latest mainstream/literary novel is “Ten Months in Wonderland”. More information about Terry is available at: The Saturday, October 5 workshop is set for 1pm to 3pm at Wenatchi Hall on the Wenatchee Valley College campus. Registration is $50 for non-members or $15 for Write on the River members. Registration and membership at
