Character Boot Camp
April 7 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
One event on April 14, 2020 at 6:00 pm
This 2-day workshop will focus on the interior and exterior lives of fiction characters in order to make them more dimensional and alive in your stories. The process will examine character in relation to setting, scene, and conflict as well as defining who your characters are in terms of their lives before the story. We’ll complete exercises, write from prompts, and share feedback. Bring writing materials and any works-in-progress to class. Please enter through the 5th Street door.
Dates: April 7 & 14 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm
