Ever read (or write) a story where the hero or heroine just doesn't seem to pop? This intensive (but fun-filled!) seminar will investigate why some characters leap off the page, while others just sit there. The workshop will discuss the perils of passivity, the allure of action, and the eternal rewards of insight and instigation. We'll look at examples of unforgettable characters, and deconstruct how they got that way. An in-class exercise will bring the lesson home.
