2C: Essentials of Characterization FULL
Limited Capacity full

Are you looking for more tools with which to create complex characters in your work? Do you find yourself having difficulty getting close enough to your characters to write intimately about them? Conversely, do you feel you understand something vital about your characters but can’t seem to bring it across on the page? In this seminar, we’ll look at examples of characterization in literature and consider how the authors were able to access and depict their characters’ essential qualities. We will do writing exercises as time allows. Please come with questions about problems you’re trying to solve surrounding characterization in your own work. You’ll take away a wider set of options and/or solutions for bringing your characters to life.
