About this course:

Vivid, complex characters are the heart of good fiction. Whether you choose to render your characters through spare details or extensive description, you need to know them thoroughly. In this one-day workshop, you read short examples of memorable characterizations in literature, and engage in various writing exercises exploring diverse aspects of character: physical and other basic traits, voice and ways of thinking, habits and tastes, and relationships. You leave the workshop knowing one or two of your characters deeply enough to begin developing a work of fiction.
