Generational insights: Writing Millennial Characters

Millennials are now the largest generation in the US. Find out what events have shaped this cohort, how they’re affected by the weight of college debt, how they’re the most technologically-dependent and diverse generation, and how they’re still fighting the “me, me, me” stereotype. Come to this hands-on workshop to discuss applying these insights to reaching or writing characters from this important generation.
