What We Offer

Character Development - Level 1

An introduction into individual personality traits, character relationships and behaviour in given scenarios. This course is directed towards those developing a character which has been written by a playwright as well as those who are looking to create their own characters. Though the most benefit is derived from attending all five sessions in the pack, each session is also designed to be a stand-alone session.

Writing
Writing for Character

Whether you prefer to write narrative, dialogue, script or novel, this workshop series is open to fiction writers of all kinds. The focus on the course is character-driven storytelling, looking at how building solid characters can allow you to let the characters create the plot themselves. As Stephen King says, “Put interesting characters in difficult situations, and write to find out what happens.” Though the most benefit is derived from attending all five sessions in the pack, each session is also designed to stand-alone.
