In this workshop, we split the rendering of character into two parts: Development of character and dialogue/description. First, to craft your characters, you must explore your character as a fully-realized person, and then, you have to put that person down on the page for the readers to experience.
Syllabus: This is a four week course that will meet twice per week with discussion and exercises. We will cover the following topics:
- What is character voice?
- The difference between and purposes of various types of dialogue.
- How to layer distinct details into character personality
- How to depict detail through voice and action
- How to pace and cue dialogue
- How to use conflict to better distinguish character traits
- Class Format
- Savvy Authors' workshops are held on a forum: a bulletin board based system. You will receive a reminder notice one day prior to the start of the workshop that includes instructions on how to access the workshop forum. If you have not received instructions by the day the workshop begins, please check your spam filter.
The forum will be available the morning (EST) of the day the workshop starts and will remain accessible to all participants thereafter. You will also be given simple instructions on how to create a PDF of all your discussions along with our privacy and data retention policy.
