About this class:

When writing fiction, knowing your characters is vital to telling a compelling story. In this workshop, we'll utilize variety of prompts to dive deep into our characters and better understand their personalities, motivations, and needs. Each workshop will consist of dedicated writing time to suggested prompts, followed by the opportunity to share your writing and receive positive, encouraging feedback. Following the Amherst Writers and Artists method, this workshop provides a safe and supportive space to experiment with your writing and character development.


This class will be most helpful for: 

  • Fiction writers, writing in short stories or novels or who want to

  • Beginning writers who struggle with confidence and writers' block

  • Writers struggling to hone a character's voice

  • Writers who feel stuck in a story and don't know what the character will do next.

  • Writers looking for unique ways to build character profiles
