Story codes the matrix of our reality. Our ability to create emotionally resonant, dynamic characters represents the grammar of the language of story. This workshop focuses on equipping you with a toolkit to summon dynamic characters in short stories, personal essays, novels, memoirs, blogs, and graphic arts. Tap into divergent sources including psychology, screenwriting, meditation, interviews, and imagery. Learn how to birth, shape, and craft dialogue and action. Melt your writer's block by falling in love with your character mirrors and learn how to listen to your/their voices as you create worlds.
