Free Writing Class at North Branch Library

FWA St. Pete is proud to present this FREE Writing Class for members and non-members alike!
Hurting Your Characters
Speaker: M.J. Carlson
Join us for this FREE writing class called "Hurting Your Characters: Writing Believable Injuries from the Character's Point of View." Award-winning Author M.J. Carlson will be speaking.

About the Class
Attendees will come away from the lecture with a basic understanding of the most common injuries in fiction, in everyday language. This includes the immediate effect of the trauma on the body, and its physiologic response to trauma. M.J. Carlson will help attendees gain an understanding of why a given injury hurts, including a superficial overview of the physiology of acute pain in easy-to-understand terms and ideas. He'll conclude with an overview of the expected recovery times for the injuries discussed in young, otherwise healthy individuals.

WHEN: Saturday, March 26th from 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
WHERE: North Branch St. Pete Library, 861 70th Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL 33702 (Ph: 727-893-7214)
