Whether we are writing a screen or stage play, a novel, memoir or short story, characterisation is an important element that infuses much of the narrative and drives the plot. But how do we create credible three-dimensional characters that emotionally engage our readers?
This one-day workshop is designed to explore a range of technical tools for creating nuanced credible characters. Through a combination of discussions, readings and linked writing exercises, students will work on developing a character. In the process they will explore the role of description and dialogue, the archetypal function/s of characters, how a character’s desires and fears drive the plot, the role of conflict in story development, and how a character might change and develop through the course of a story.
