Character Studies

How many ways can you widen your focus? How can you find new stories and perspectives to tell? In this class, we'll explore the idea of character through a number of lenses you won't expect—sometimes celebrating ordinary concerns, sometimes finding incredible wisdom outside of ourselves. Each week, we'll discuss texts that will get you thinking about craft in new ways. You will draft at least three new pieces during these sessions.
