Craft on Draft is a reading series devoted to great fiction—and the mechanics behind it. Three authors read and discuss their work, plus that of one lucky audience member. So grab a drink, a page of your own writing, and come craft your own draft.
April 4, 2017: Secondary Characters: The Importance of a Supporting Cast
Everyone loves a great protagonist, but great novels also need strong secondary characters. Come hear authors Camille DeAngelis (Immaculate Heart), Sara Farizan (Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel), and Annie Weatherwax (All We Had) discuss how they create terrific supporting characters who bring out the best, and worst, in their protagonists.
Want to get in on the action? Submit a page of your own work (max 250 words) that shows your supporting characters in action. One lucky winner will have their entry read and discussed by the authors, receive a GrubStreet pint glass + drink, and have their piece and an interview published on the Dead Darlings blog. Submissions must be emailed to email@example.com by April 2nd.
