Letting Your Characters Tell the Story [Michael Cunningham]
DATE CHANGE: This class will now take place on 12/13. This has been updated from the print catalog.
Fully imagined characters always produce a story. Trust me about that. When writers tell me they have trouble with plots, what I believe they’re actually saying is, they have trouble fully imagining their characters. In my Word Works lecture, we’ll talk about creating characters who are already alive when they enter the narrative. In this class, we’ll focus on how the specifics of those characters can be so compellingly conveyed as to bring those people physically to life, using only ink and paper.
- Michael Cunningham will speak at Word Works | Michael Cunningham: The Problem Is Never the Plot on Thursday, December 12, at 7 pm.
