WORKSHOP 10: Teenagers are Smart! Ideas for Writing Characters that Will (Hopefully) Speak to Them

By Whistler Writers Festival (other events)

Sunday, October 18 2020 9:00 AM 10:00 AM PST

With Tanya Boteju

If I’ve learned anything from teaching teenagers for twenty years, it’s that they’re deeply complex human beings with the ability to see through superficiality in an instant! Hence, writing character-driven stories for teens means spending time capturing that depth in your characters so your young, smart readers are left satisfied and connected. In this workshop, my hope is that you’ll walk away with some energy and excitement for creating complex characters and some tools to help get you there. Tanya Boteju is the author of YA novel Kings, Queens and In-betweens.
