Develop Vivid Characters—A Tutorial Writing Program


Writing a memoir—and this is true of creating any work of art—is fueled both by inspiration and by craft.

In this tutorial program, you will learn more skills to craft compelling characters for your memoir. In doing this, you are learning to manipulate your writing for meaning and effect.

It seemed hard to do, write characters that “come alive.” I was missing the mark, and you helped me know what I needed to do. Thank you, thank you.

— Lillian Toussaint
