Pass the Tissues, Please


This writing workshop, geared toward the advanced writer, discusses character emotion and how to control it. We will dissect examples in published and unpublished works to find out exactly how a writer can manipulate a character’s emotion to create an equal reaction in the reader.

The Pass the Tissues, Please workshop also discusses how climatic points within a manuscript must be detailed so character emotion is not missed—and how to ensure those emotions are not portrayed melodramatically, but in such a way that they hit the reader deep in the gut.

“Wow! I never realized all the things that go on behind the scenes. I can’t wait to edit my memoir and apply all the things I learned in just two hours with Sandy. I know I’m a better writer from having attended this workshop.”
