At the core of every good tale is a character with whom the reader wants to spend time. Discover how to move beyond the superficial and cliché, crafting characters who invite the reader to explore the human condition. Illustrations and exercises will help to uncover your character’s inner values (in memoir that character is you) and present them in ways that are integral to your story. We will examine effective techniques for depicting character yearning, physical description, internal conflict, and come to understand what influences reader empathy. This workshop will benefit those writing a novel, short story, or memoir.
