The ancient system of personality typing known as the Enneagram offers a powerful technical tool for developing original and dimensional characters. Familiarity with the nine basic types can help writers sharpen conflicts between characters to make dramatic situations more compelling. Being aware of the connections between story genres and Enneagram types provides insights into why we are drawn to create thrillers, romantic comedies, science fiction or other kinds of stories. Join Write On The River and noted children’s author Claire Rudolph Murphy on January 30 from 9:00am-Noon for this illuminating, inspiring workshop to push your characters deeper and your writing further. This workshop will introduce writers to this system and how it can apply to fiction and nonfiction characters and provide insight into one’s own writing life. REGISTER NOW!
