2022 West Virginia Book Festival Writing Workshop with Lo Patrick: Becoming Your Narrator
Lo Patrick’s debut novel, The Floating Girls, follows the journey of a twelve-year old protagonist through the labyrinth of family turmoil, youthful angst, and hidden mysteries in her backwater hometown. Patrick will discuss how to write from the perspective of a child while telling an adult story and how to create a distinct voice for a narrator, specifically how to write like a character that has nothing in common with the author. Getting into character is not just for actors, and Patrick will share techniques for losing oneself in narrator and how that can more deeply connect readers both with a story and a setting.

About Lo
Lo Patrick is a former lawyer and current novelist living in the suburbs of Atlanta. The Floating Girls is her debut. 

This writing workshop is part of the 2022 West Virginia Book Festival and will take place in the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center. Find the most up-to-date room information here:
