Beyond Stereotypes: How to Create Diverse Characters with Dimension

February 5 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

- $55 – $65
Paula Martinac

Many of us fear writing about people who are different from ourselves, afraid that it’s too hard or that, worse, we’ll get it “wrong,” but accepting the challenge can make us better writers (and more empathetic human beings). In this class, we’ll study the issues and techniques surrounding the crafting of fiction with strong, believable, diverse characters and engage in writing exercises that help us break out of our typical ways of portraying our fiction characters.
