Class Description

Camaraderie between reader and main character is vital if we’re to establish a lasting, poignant connection between them. But how do we build that? What if we render a character’s consciousness as though it’s a cogent ecosystem for the reader to inhabit? In this class, students will be led through all five senses, learning how to translate perceptions into opportunities to enhance psychic access on the page. Through in-class writing prompts, we’ll build dynamic inner lives for our characters, places for our readers to curl up and listen to the whispers of the heart. Instructor bio: Joshua Mohr is the author of seven books, most recently the memoir MODEL CITIZEN (FSG/MCD). He's also scribbled SOME THINGS THAT MEANT THE WORLD TO ME, one of Oprah's Top 10 of 2009, and TERMITE PARADE, an editors' choice in the New York Times. ALL THIS LIFE won the Northern California book award. He is the founder of Decant Editorial and has sold TV shows to AMC, Amblin, and ITV. Please note: Each session will be recorded and the recording made available for one week. All times are Pacific Time.
