8L: Irresistable Characters FULL
Limited Capacity full

This intensive (but fun-filled!) seminar will investigate why some characters leap off the page, while others just sit there. We’ll look at the work of Joyce Carol Oates, Virginia Wolff, Dickens and others to help explore ALL the many ways (most of them overlooked!) that great writers create rich, nuanced, irresistible characters. We’ll do a quick in-class exercise to bring the lesson home. Come prepared to rock.
