Creating Nonhuman Characters [Elizabeth Beechwood & Katherine Quevedo]

All Levels | Nonhuman characters bring a depth to your story not achievable with human characters. By exploring four elements — point of view, intelligence, behavior, and “The Wilding” (the moment when the animal character becomes its most primitive self ) — you can follow in the footsteps of Sofia Samatar, Caroline M. Yoachim, Brooke Bolander, and Garth Stein to create unforgettable nonhuman characters that readers identify with and love. This lively workshop explores not only animals but also landscapes, mythical creatures, and inanimate objects, such as toys and appliances.
