Class Description

Everything in fiction depends on your characters. Are they believable? Do their motivations make sense? Are they someone your reader will love to root for (or against)? In this day-long class, we'll focus on all the ways you can make your characters come alive on the page...and in your readers' minds. We'll also talk about how to keep your characters from being one-dimensional, how to give them a unique voice, and how to dig in and discover exactly who they are. Bring your manuscripts and your questions! Instructor bio: Nayomi Munaweera was born in Sri Lanka. She grew up in Nigeria and immigrated to Los Angeles with her family in the early 80's. She is the award-winning author of the novels, ISLAND OF A THOUSAND MIRRORS and WHAT LIES BETWEEN US. She has been named one of “Twelve Women of Color Writers You Need to Know” by Bustle Magazine and “One of the Asian American Women Writers Who are Going to Change the World” by Electric Literature.
