Building Character(s) in Four Weeks
Believable characters are essential to good novel writing. In this workshop, you actually create a character or characters you will be able to use in your fiction. The class includes guided out-of-class writing designed to flesh out characters; in–class sharing of readings, ideas, observations, and writings; and feedback and discussion from the group.
