Under Construction: Developing Your Characters with Amanda Arista

April 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

Concerned you’ll have to spend months constructing a character? Afraid the one you have might have the wrong foundation for the story you want to tell? Using an amalgamation of top screenwriting teachers and a few pop-psychology add-ins, Amanda Arista will show you how to build a character that will support the story you want to tell and invite readers onto the page with their own backstory, voice, and true connection to the world you have built.








Along with her BA in English & Psychology and her MA in Education, Amanda Arista is a graduate of the SMU Creative Writing Program and now teaches other aspiring authors. She has delivered lectures at several writer conferences and loves discussing craft, character, and structure.

She is represented by Kimberly Brower, of Brower Literary & Management.
