Jan Cheripko is going to be doing a workshop for writers at the Highlights Foundation focusing on Beyond Main Characters: An In-Depth Look at Your Supporting Cast and Transitional Scenes. Jan’s co-teacher is author Hannah Barnaby, and they’ll be joined by special guests Patricia Reilly Giff and Clara Gillow Clark. It’s a four-day workshop from March 29 to April 1, that includes critique sessions. Here’s a link to the Highlights Foundation website for more information Jan’s 2014 workshop: http://www.highlightsfoundation.org
Jan’s the real deal, a multi-talented writer, teacher, and editor. He was my editor for WILD COUNTRY and we’ve been friends and colleagues for many years. If you are interested in learning more about bringing your supporting characters to life, I can recommend this workshop.
