This workshop takes place Thu, Nov 9, 16, 30, Dec 7.

How can we better develop the characters who live, love, struggle, lie, fight, move, resist, and sometimes even die in our stories? Energize your writing process by experimenting with different narrative styles and points of view, and looking more closely at scene development, revision, and other aspects of fiction writing. Come away with new writing and an array of tools for creating authentic, fully-realized characters in your short stories and novels.
