Calling Writers of Tulare and Kings County!
Creating Fictional Characters will be the subject of a mini-workshop at the meeting of Tulare-Kings Writers this Sat. June 17th at 10 AM in the Blue Room at the Visalia Library. Gloria Getman will lead the discussion of the three essential components of creating a character readers will care about. Participants are asked to bring a sketch of one of their own fictional characters to share with the group.

If you’ve never considered writing fiction before, this will be a good place to start. You will be able to draw on the experience of other writers who have created fascinating characters in the world of fiction. A handout will be available to help you bring your character to life. Experienced scribblers will enjoy sharing their favorite character.

Gloria Getman, author of two Deena Powers mysteries: Lottie’s Legacy and Birds of a Feather as well as three short stories in the anthology, Leaves From the Valley Oak. She is an active member of San Joaquin Sisters in Crime and current leader of T-K-W.
