Instructor Karen Finneyfrock guides you though ways to develop an emotional response in readers in this workshop for fiction writers.
Do you find yourself struggling to show a character’s emotions on the page? End up with a lot of hand-wringing and tears? In this workshop, we will explore some of the ways writers create an emotional response in the reader. Primarily geared toward writers working on novels or short stories.
Karen Finneyfrock is a poet and young adult novelist. She has been a teacher and Writer-in-Residence at Hugo House, teaches for Seattle Arts and Lectures’ Writers in the Schools program, and was the curator for the 2016 Jack Straw Writers Program.
