In this class we’ll draw from our pandemic experience to create stories and essays.

Creating Memorable Characters

How do writers make up characters? How do you create believable characters? What do you name them? I used to find this a daunting task.

Using Landscape to Strengthen Your Writing

I like to use the term landscape versus the traditional term setting when talking about the environments where stories take place. When I was working on my MFA, I studied the work of another student who classified landscape in three categories: the outdoors, the indoors, and the minds of characters. This fascinated me and really expanded the idea of setting and how it can influence a piece of writing. We’ll look at examples of each type of landscape and participants will create landscapes for their writing.

Classes will be held at The Web, 1083 Washington Avenue, Macon, GA 31201 from 2-4 p.m.
