Some writers deliver a masterpiece that was inspired by a single moment or a chance conversation they overheard. Others see a character and follow them. Sometimes writers do both. In this workshop, whether you are writing for performance or text, Amal Awad discusses the importance of authentic characters and how they are the ultimate storytellers in your work.
This intensive will cover:
- Dialogue and character voices
- Other character essentials - Status, behaviours, relationships and more
- Studies of memorable characters from film and television
- Exercises to develop your characters
The class is suitable for any level of storyteller who is interested in better understanding the significance of developing and writing from character.
