And there is no better way to draw your readers in than by creating compelling characters.

In this four week course, an abundance of learning opportunities will promote discussion and give you plenty of opportunity to learn from each other. Submitting work will allow you to put the theory to work and benefit from classmates feedback.

Any writer, at any level, who wants personalized, hands-on experience and feedback on character development, and how the character impacts the forward motion of the story.
