Using Character to Drive Story Workshop with Julie Artz – 3/27 at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT

Join Passionate Ink’s “Using Character to Drive Story” Workshop with Julie Artz on March 27th at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT and discover why fantastic stories feature compelling characters.

Whether you’re writing fast-paced romantic suspense, magical spice, or something a bit more cozy, your main characters’ motivations—and how they collide—are the key to upping the tension and keeping readers turning pages. We’ll cover how to find the link between character motivation and character arc, how backstory contributes to vivid characters, how character drives the cause and effect trajectory of your story, and using motivation to up the stakes in this informative 45-minute lecture on using character motivation to drive your story with seasoned book coach Julie Artz.

Julie Artz spent her young life sneaking into wardrobes searching for Narnia. When people started to think that was too weird, she went in search of other ways to go on magical adventures. Now she finds those long-sought doors to mystical story worlds in her work as an author, editor, and book coach. She helps social and environmental justice minded writers send their work out into the world with confidence. Her clients have published with the Big Five, with small and university presses, and indie/hybrid as well. An active member of the writing community, she has volunteered for SCBWI, TeenPit, and Pitch Wars and is a member of the EFA, the Authors Guild, and AWP. A consummate story geek and wyrdo, Julie lives in an enchanted forest outside of Redmond, Washington.

Registration is $15 for Passionate Ink members and $30 for non-members. This workshop will be recorded for registrants who cannot attend the live session.

I wish only to hear Julie Artz’s lecture. I have already paid $15.00 but since I’m not amember I need to pay $1500 more. However your payment procedure will only let me pay $30.00 which would be a total of $45.00

Dear Mr. Ironside, if you choose a second registration as a Passionate Ink member (even though you are not one), it will let you pay the additional $15 that would make your total payment the $30 non-member registration fee. Thank you.
