We’re so excited to open the season with our October 13-14 Editor Extravaganza, featuring Tiffany Liao, Editor at Henry Holt Books for Young Readers!
Registration is now open for Tiffany Liao’s workshop, “The Heart Wants What It Wants: How to Make Readers Fall in Love With Your Characters.”
Here’s what Tiffany has to say about her workshop:
“With every book I edit, I always start with one big question: What does the character want? Your character motivation is the heart of the story and will inform every element in your book including voice, plot, pacing, and world-building. I’ll show you how to dig deep into your character to establish a motivation that is compelling, believable, and urgently drives the story forward from page to page.”
Don’t be left out of this wonderful opportunity to work with Tiffany Liao in her master class, on October 13, from 1:30-4 pm, following the monthly meeting at Seattle Central Library Seats cost $65 for SCBWI International Members, and $75 for all others.
