You have an idea for a story that is compelling you. Maybe you have written a few pages or a fully-formed draft. Is the emotion that is inspiring you to write your story coming out on the page?
In this workshop, Sheryl Haft will apply lessons from beloved children’s books and Pixar’s The Art of Storytelling to encourage greater character depth and emotion in your writing.
A deep dive into mentor texts will shine light on structure and character building. In-workshop exercises will give writers opportunities to discover the strengths of their characters and the heart in their stories.
“The characters in a children’s book must reach into the heart of the reader on page one. Emotional content is the main reason a child and a parent will go back to a book again and again.” – Rosemary Wells
