All Levels | This workshop will focus on techniques to get your characters’ rich inner lives on the page. We’ll use in-class writing activities and close readings of masters of interiority like Virginia Woolf, Toni Morrison, and Lydia Davis to jump-start our stories, and we’ll discuss our own fiction in a supportive, generative workshop setting. You’ll leave with at least one revised piece and with a greater understanding of how form, style, and psychology combine to create complex characters.
