This is the livestream* version of this class. For the in-person version, please click here.

The great advantage of prose (over theater, film, and life) is that we’re privy to characters’ interior states. But how can a writer get thoughts and emotions across, other than by stating them flat-out or by updating us constantly on breathing and heart rate? We’ll explore ways to use tangent, gesture, backstory, action, association, and more to give characters a rich internal life without resorting to the old cardiopulmonary check-in.

*This course will be presented in livestream format, rather than hybrid, so those participating virtually will not be visible or audible to those in person. The facilitator will do their best to repeat audience questions, and the moderator will forward questions from virtual participants to the facilitator whenever possible. Unfortunately, no recordings will be made of this event, so registrants will need to view it live, MDT.
