Pre-Conference Class: Creating Memorable Characters – Hallie Ephron
Where do these people come from? Planning and developing names and details.
This workshop will step through the process of planning and developing memorable characters: from coming up with names to finding those telling details that ignite the character’s first turn on the stage.
How to use character to drive narrative voice, dialogue, action, and setting.
And how to create a character web in which characters play with and off one another, providing the conflict that fuels a page turner.
