Member Pro:Characters Who Grow for the Soil—or Life—They’re Planted In

  • 19 Sep 2020
  • 10:00 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Remote

Registration is closed

Characters who stay with us long after we put the book down or shut off the video are those who couldn’t come from anywhere else. It’s like they’re born from the soil where they plant their feet. Their dilemmas, their passions, their way of dealing with their conflicts are born of the geography or the circumstances from which they emerge.

This workshop will include limited reading aloud of relevant passages demonstrating the above ideas; guided brainstorming to describe characters; practice with timed drills to flesh out character elements and possible plot angles. With each opportunity to write examples of the above, feedback from the group will be used to facilitate learning.
