Building Your Protagonist: The Dignity of Character Complexity

Intermediate | We all know that one of our chief aims as authors is to construct a convincing protagonist. Someone who feels as though they are vibrantly alive, blood in their hearts, even as they’re simple scribbles on the page. We’ll talk about how to inhabit a consciousness, all the while keeping the plot chugging ahead in a believable and enthralling way.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Spring quarter 2021.
