The Setting of the Mind [Joshua Mohr]
Intermediate | Camaraderie between reader and main character is vital if we’re to establish a lasting, poignant connection between them. But how do we build that? What if we render a character’s consciousness as though it’s a cogent ecosystem for the reader to inhabit? In this class, students will be led through all five senses, learning how to translate perceptions into opportunities to enhance psychic access on the page. Through in-class writing prompts, we’ll build dynamic inner lives for our characters, places for our readers to curl up and listen to the whispers of the heart.
