Scaling the Mountain: Wildness in Writing

Saturday November 12, 2022 10:00 - 12:00 AM  Mountain Daylight time Class

Liars, Criminals and Lovers:
Story as Character, Character as Story

Class begins Wednesday, October 5 thru November 16, 2022 

Weekly Zoom meetings on Tuesdays begining October 11      
7:00 - 8:00 PM  Eastern Time

Long after we finish a story, a well-written character stays with us. In this interactive, generative course, you’ll gain a better understanding of the role of characters in literary fiction—and learn to create fully developed characters that make your readers cheer, cry, rage, or exclaim.

Stories and characters are everywhere. We will explore many stories, from flash fiction to short stories, each with memorable characters, and we will trace a line through them: stories are character. This class is open to anyone at any level.
