Do you have a message you want to get across with your work?

Fiction as a platform to discuss ideas and opinions is a grand literary tradition. But it can often turn into a stage for the author to rant. This class will focus on creating characters that are intelligent and believable but not mere mouthpieces for the author. http://www.writersleague.org/calendar/PersuadeNotPreachHudley2020
