Workshop: Deep POV
'INSTRUCTOR: Jules Bennett
''WHEN: "February 3rd - February 14th"
''WORKSHOP: Are your characters one dimensional? Do you read books by other authors and wonder how they were able to pull you right into the scene? Would you like to be able to make your characters and even your settings come alive and be more believable and jump off the page?
In this workshop on Deep POV, we will explore how to dig into each character, pull out even the smallest details to make them come alive. We will explore how to take a scene and the location and give it a life of its own. Every aspect of your book should have a point of view and you will learn how to make this happen with just a few simple exercises. The workshop will run for 2 weeks and we will have plenty of time for questions and samples to look over. Once you learn how to make those books come alive even more, you can send out those manuscripts with confidence!
ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR: Wife to her high school sweetheart, mother to two little girls, former salon owner—oh, and author—Jules Bennett isn't afraid to tackle the blessings of life head-on. Once she sets a goal in her sights, get out of her way or come along for the ride…just ask her husband. Jules lives in the Midwest where she loves spending time with her family and making memories. Jules's love extends beyond her family and books. She's an avid shoe, hat and purse connoisseur. She feels that her font of knowledge when it comes to accessories is essential when setting a scene. Please visit her Web site, julesbennett.com where you can sign up for her newsletter to keep up to date on everything in Jules's life. Or you can follow her on Twitter where she shares all exciting things in her life...and some not so exciting like housekeeping. She also has a Fan Page on Facebook. Jules loves to hear from readers on any social media site!
Cost for the workshop is $15 for NEORWA members, $20 for all others. You do not have to be an RWA member to take our workshops!
