Who’s Story Is It?: Character-Building
- 40 US dollars$40
This workshop will investigate the art and nuance of making authentic characters: narrative personages that, despite being little more than ink splotches on the page, believably live and breathe within the diegetic world of a story. We will practice assembling the moving parts that produce a believable character and, conversely, what relationship they bear to considerations of setting, structure, and perspective. By the end of the workshop, students will have gained a heuristic toolset for building characters and a fundamental grasp on narrative setting and perspective.
