Fiction, inescapably, is the art form of human yearning.
Robert Olen Butler
What do your characters yearn for? Examine how a character's wants and desires drive key elements of story, including narrative, dialogue, conflict, and plot. Short exercises and readings will illustrate ways to identify and depict a character's passion, which is essential to creating a compelling person — someone with whom a reader wants to spend time. Come to strengthen what is memorable about the people who populate your tales, or come ready to create a new character whose story commands attention. This workshop is appropriate for those working on a novel, short story, or memoir.
