Guest Speaker: Jax Bubis on Characterization
July 23, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm
6:30 – 7:00: Social. Grab a cup of joe, maybe a plate of Agia Sophia’s scrumptious food, sit back, and relax. Catch up with old friends. Make some new ones.
7:00 – 8:00: Guest Speaker – Author Jax Bubis on Characterization Are your characters a bit… one dimensional? Are your heroes blandly heroic? Your villains dastardly dry and lifeless? Do your supporting characters have the personality of beige paint? Published fiction author Jax Bubis will present her keys to creating rich characters with the depth to make your stories feel real to the reader. Her one hour event includes time for Q&A so bring your concerns and conundrums that worry you about your characters.
