Great characters live in the hearts of their readers. This workshop will help you create compelling characters of your own. Use tropes with a twist; develop a strong voice; write motivations and complex personalities; and learn how characters overlap with genre, plotting, dialogue and point of view. Bring a laptop or pen and paper, and get ready for plenty of ideas, exercises and tips to get you through the first draft of a novel. Presenter Sarah Gates is the author of Love Elimination and a freelance writer for Junkee, Voiceworks and InDaily. Sarah has appeared on panels at National Young Writers Festival and Sydney Writers Festival.
