Character Building

Sat, 25 Mar, 2017 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM

"Let us think about this for a moment. A stranger enters a room. How do we immediately begin to take his measure?" James Wood asks in How Fiction Works, and it is the novelist who answers. While it takes “a very few brushstrokes to get a portrait walking,” it takes more to create a convincing voice and consciousness. In this one-day workshop we will be delving into the process of creation, dabbing on the flecks which bring a character to life. With the help of the historians of character-making, you will plumb the past and present of your protagonist, explore their thoughts, and put personality to the test, in a series of revealing scenes.
