Characters are the most basic part of writing fiction, but just how do you create fictional people that will win readers over? We'll study how masters such as Kent Haruf, Lucia Berlin, Ann Patchett, and Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah introduce major and minor characters. We’ll talk about "spark plug characters" and how to create them, learn how to collect character details in a writer's notebook, and discuss the importance of giving our characters skills.
