Crafting Memorable Characters
Whether you’re writing short stories, a novel or creative nonfiction, at the heart of any good story are the characters in it. In this six week course you will discover how to build and bring to life complex, vivid and memorable characters. Through discussion and writing exercises (in class and at home) we will discuss the choices a writer makes to bring their characters to life and practice various techniques to create a variety of characters, learn how to use our own life experiences and the people we know to develop complex inner and outer lives for our characters and how this can lead to richer, more interesting stories.
