Creating (Un)likable Characters

All Levels | The Misfit, Ignatius Loyola, Nick and Amy Dunne—one of the great ironies of literature is that we are often most compelled and captivated by characters who are dirty, rotten people we would never want to know. Through generative work and strategic reading of acclaimed published work, we will look at how to create characters that we care about—even root for—despite not liking them one bit.

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.
