MARY SULLIVAN
DEVELOPING CHARACTER THROUGH POINT OF VIEW on May 27!  


In this talk and optional workshop, Author Mary Sullivan will share exercises and approaches that will embolden the idea for developing character through point-of-view.
Once you develop interesting and unique characters, where do you go from there? Since character drives plot, Mary will show you how to begin your novel, twist through the middle and end with a riveting emotional story no one will ever forget.


Multi-published author, MARY SULLIVAN, finds fulfillment in writing heart-warming, small town romance. Her first book, NO ORDINARY COWBOY, was a finalist in Romance Writers of America’s GOLDEN HEART contest. Her eighteen books have won awards—Romantic Times Reviewers’ Choice, NJRW’s Golden Leaf, The Reader’s Crown and a Booksellers’ Best Award. For Mary, writing a book is much like putting together a jigsaw puzzle without the final image. She indulges her passion for puzzles—particularly getting her daily cryptic crossword fix and putting together real jigsaw puzzles without the box—in her hometown of Toronto.

The Writers’ Community of Simcoe County

functions as a hub for practitioners and fans of the written word. Our aim is to engage, inform and encourage writers at all levels and of all genres, independently and in co-operation with existing cultural and writing-related organizations, associations, libraries and community groups.

From September to June, we meet one Sunday a month from 11:30 to 1:00 p.m. at The Leacock Museum, 50 Museum Drive, Orillia. Each month we feature speakers from all aspects of the writing life – authors, freelancers, editors, agents, and publishers – to motivate, inspire and enlighten writers and aspiring writers in our community. Each month we offer an optional hands-on workshop which follows a short break after the speaker. The workshop is from 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm.

WCSC offers you opportunities for information-sharing, networking and support, education and professional development. Whether you are a fiction or non-fiction writer, poet, playwright, screenwriter, songwriter, editor, or someone who just loves the way words connect, you’ll find yourself at home at a WCSC  meeting.

If you’d like to be notified of what is developing with the organization, please send us a notice via the contact form on this website or subscribe using our RSS feed. Better still, you can become involved as a charter member. For more information, click on the Membership tab.
