Editor's Note

Discovering Characters with Jeanne Thornton
Saturday, March 9
9 AM  – 12 PM PST / 12 – 3 PM EST

Rich and resonant characters are why we read fiction. As writers, they’re also one of our best tools for exploring and opening up our works in progress. In this craft intensive, we’ll examine how authors have achieved some of literature’s greatest characters, and then, in a series of practical exercises, we’ll discover and develop rounded characters that connect to our own deep experiences.

The scholarship for this intensive has already been awarded.
