Breathing life into characters requires less description and more understanding of their beliefs, lies, and truths; less biography and more knowledge of their Garden of Shame and the ghost that haunts them; less setting and more analysis of the geography, society, and the eras that influenced them. Bring your novel or short story characters to this course, prepared to workshop and critique.
This class take place in person at the Alexandra Writers’ Centre in Calgary.
