Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Conference

​Conference 2023 Thursday Intensive

In answer to a demand for more in-depth programming, the Colorado Gold Writers Conference offers Thursday Intensives: all-day themed programming on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2023, before the official conference begins Friday. We’re offering two different Thursday Intensive tracks this year, and both will be hosted at The Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver.

Block Three: “Main Character Writing: Richer, Rounder, Fuller” with Traci Jones
Do you want your readers to care about your story? The key to hooking readers into your novel is to have a rich, round, fully developed main character. This class will look at all the writing elements that you need to think about when creating your main character. Among other writing techniques, we will spend a lot of time developing a vocabulary for your character (dialogue/voice), writing a backstory that will enhance not only your character but will help create tension in your plot and move it forward, as well as figuring out how to construct your character’s identity through other literary means.
