6 p.m.A creative writing workshop with Jessica Lanay Moore of Poets and Writers
Well-rounded characters jump off the page and seduce readers of fiction and memoir. How do writers achieve this? This workshop will focus on writing the faulty protagonist and working against the all-seeing, all knowing, narrative voice. Even the saintliest of characters have flaws and these are often the qualities that make them real to readers, who must continue reading to find out what will happen to them in the end. Sponsored by the Bronx Council on the Arts.
