    Characterization: How & What to Reveal with Shelley Strock

    May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'Dallas Area Writers Group August 9, 2022 @ 7PM Shelly Strock Characterization How & What You Reveal Zula B. Wylie Library 225 Cedar St Cedar Hill, TX75104 and via Zoom www.dallaswriters.org'


    Shelley Strock, M.A., MFA, will lead a discussion about the need for and ways of achieving solid characterization in all kinds of writing, including nonfiction and poetry. She'll help us loosen some of the long-accepted "rules" for writing, offer some useful tips on what to look for when editing our drafts, and provide insights she's gained from working with high school and college writers of all abilities. There will be a "Suggested Do’s and don'ts" handout and time for your questions and comments.
