Creative writers and storytellers will learn strategies for creating and developing relatable, convincing characters for their creative writing projects or other story-based projects, as well as ways to reveal who the characters are as their stories unfold.

Writers will work to create/develop a character for one of their own story-based creative writing projects, to be workshopped by the group in the second class session. The complexity of this project for any particular learner depends on the complexity of the character and their story, as well as what the author already knows about the character. Character development typically continues throughout the writing process, so there is not an expectation that the character be "complete" or fully understood yet (although it is also OK if the writer believes they are "done" with the character).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
