Master Class: The Craft of Character with Bruce Holsinger
October 11 @ 11:15 am - 1:15 pm$45 – $65
This class will address the making of human characters in fiction. Characters–believable, authentic, sympathetic–are the lifeblood of story. Who wants to read or keep reading a novel if we don’t care about the fellow human beings inhabiting its setting and guiding its plot? We’ll look at several examples of great characters and try out some character-building exercises of our own. All levels welcome.
