Character Building

We’ll explore the needs, desires, failures, and hopes of the characters in your story, memoir, or novel using questions inspired by the Humans of New York (HONY) blog. HONY has gone viral on Facebook, thanks in large part to the intriguing captions that accompany Brandon Stanton’s photographs. The interview questions he asks his subjects—what was the worst day of your life, what was your happiest moment, what’s your greatest struggle—are the basis of any character.

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.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
