"The characters all sound alike," "I couldn't tell the voices apart," "Wait, who's that again?" Let's banish these phrases from our readers' minds. In this class we'll talk about what makes characters pop, what makes them flop, and how to make people seem vivid without making them cartoons. We'll talk introducing new characters, crafting their dialogue, building their arcs, and making sure they undergo transformation (or don't, as serves our purpose). We'll look at successful examples, map out exercises, and try our hand at ventriloquism. Let's leave with more people than we came in with, and bolder.
