Often when a story feels flat, or like it doesn’t quite peak, the problem is not plot but character. What are our characters willing to do to get what they want? What will they sacrifice to avoid what they fear?

In this workshop, we’ll read and revise stories with an eye on character, plumbing the depths of the people we write to craft stories that other people will want to read.

This class is open to writers at all levels, including writers who have not perviously participated in a workshop.
