6G: The Three Layers of Character FILLING

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity filling up

In his writing guide How Fiction Works, critic James Wood uses Dostoevsky as a model for how writers must show the three crucial layers of a character to make them feel real. This class will show how to tap into the conscious, subconscious, and unconscious layers of a great modern character - whether fictional or nonfictional. Using exercises based around essays and stories by Flannery O'Connor, Virginia Woolf, and more, students will be able to create rich, multi-faceted characters who are as real as can be.
