Remote Session (OCWW is remote only through Dec. 2020)

They say your characters aren't really real until they start to talk back to you, but how do you make that happen? In this session, we'll discuss techniques for fleshing out characters who can help steer your narrative, and infuriate, puzzle, surprise and endear themselves to readers. 

Bio: Christina Clancy's debut novel, The Second Home, was released June 2, by St. Martin's Press. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, in The Sun Magazine, and elsewhere. She has a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and lives in Madison, Wisconsin. Her second novel, Shoulder Season, will be published summer 2021. 

Christina will take three manuscripts for critique, selected in order of submission. Please see manuscript guidelines on our website for details.

We offer free student memberships at a discounted rate of $5.00 per session. You must send verification of your student status. Please contact Claudia Katz at for details.
