Writing Strong Female Characters in Thrillers with Sonja Dewing

March 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT


Come join us for a workshop with thriller author Sonja Dewing!

If you've ever thought about writing a book with a strong female lead, especially a thriller, now's the time! According to Publisher Rocket, there are over 2,000 searches a month for Female Lead books and there are over 800 searching for strong women in thrillers. In “Writing Strong Female Characters in Your Thrillers” beginner level authors will learn what makes a strong character and incorporating that into thriller plots. Sonja Dewing will share her workbook – Writing Thriller Characters.

In this masterclass, Sonja will teach:
  • How to create characters quickly
  • How to develop main female characters that are seen as strong
  • How to incorporate your characters into your thriller plot (or any plot!)
  • Answer all your questions in a Q&A session

    Sonja Dewing is an award-winning and best-selling author of adventure/fantasy novels. She's also CEO of Women's Thriller Writers Association. In 2014, when an agent told her no one would read a fantasy book with a main female character, she proved him wrong. She started WTWA in 2020 and in 2022, when an agent told Linda Petrilli that a woman couldn't use a sniper rifle, she realized that the WTWA was and will always be needed to support women in thrillers.
