The Art of Character Creation

Characters are the driving force of fiction. They are complex creatures that reflect real people and real experiences yet are not real. Without them, our novels and stories would be skeletons with no muscle or skin. This 4-session workshop will cover everything from the basics of developing backstory, appearance, and biographical details to the nuances of background characters, motivation, and tension. We will deconstruct famous fictional figures like James Bond and Darth Vader to find out what makes them so compelling. We will use exercises to create new characters and strengthen existing ones. Regardless of where you are on your writing journey, this workshop will help you develop irresistible, lovable (or hateable!), round characters.
