What You Don’t Know about Your Character

All Levels. We may have ideas for them, but the ghosts that inhabit our pages have ideas of their own. From the enigmatic “She got into that boat before I could stop her,” to the dark “I didn’t know he was going to die,” our fictional characters’ motivations and desires take over our plot and electrify our prose. Through examples and exercises, you will craft unforgettable characters and leave this class with at least one nuanced, flawed, vital human being (or vampire).

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
