Writing Fiction: Creating Characters



A one-off workshop looking at character development in writing.

Suitable for complete beginners or more experienced writers interested in working on their craft. Learn how to create compelling characters that your readers can believe in with this focused workshop.

Using established techniques and structured writing exercises, you will develop an original character - whether it’s one that’s been in your head for years or a completely new creation - and use it to create a piece of short fiction.

Characters can make or break a piece of creative writing - learn how to make yours spring to life off the page.
