Secondary Characters: The Importance of a Supporting Cast

Everyone loves a great protagonist, but great novels also need strong secondary characters. Come hear authors Camille DeAngelis (Immaculate Heart), Sara Farizan (Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel), and Annie Weatherwax (All We Had) discuss how they create terrific supporting characters who bring out the best, and worst, in their protagonists.

Want to get in on the action? Submit a page of your own work (max 250 words) that shows your supporting characters in action. One lucky winner will have their entry read and discussed by the authors, receive a GrubStreet pint glass + drink, and have their piece and an interview published on the Dead Darlings blog. Submissions must be emailed to by April 2nd.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Readings begin at 7 p.m. sharp!
