“When writing a novel, a writer should create living people; people not characters. A character is a caricature.” – Ernest Hemingway

Compelling and complex characters are the secret sauce to every great story. They are the reason we return to the same books over and over – why we cry and laugh and then feel their loss so acutely when the final page is turned. But what makes a character unforgettable?  In this course students will become intimately acquainted with their protagonists, their villains, and their supporting cast. Get ready to dig into backstory, dialogue, motive, and – best of all – deep dark secrets and vulnerabilities. Come with an existing crew or create your characters as the weeks progress – either way, you will leave with a cast of living people and a solid understanding of what future characters need from you in order to come to life.
