What we're about

Welcome, storyteller! I'm Julie Tyler, the organizer of this Meetup and the founder of StoryBold. I built this community to unite writers who are passionate about stories and their power to make a difference in the world. We come from all backgrounds, age groups, and worldviews, but what we share is this:

• We are deeply committed to the writing process

• We are driven to reach our writing goals

• We seek out qualified feedback and look for ways to implement it

• We support one another without fail

LIVE WEBINAR: Craft characters readers never forget!

Online event

Characters are the heartbeat of every story, driving the action and mood of every scene. And when you develop them fully, readers will laugh with them, cry with them, hope and dream with them, and learn from them. To make this possible, we as storytellers must sit our characters down and get to know them inside and out. But how do we do this? What are the steps to designing and crafting stand-out characters? What’s the best way to showcase characters in every scene? How do we manage a growing cast of characters without getting overwhelmed?
