Fiction: Character First
Do you want to be a writer? Like anything else, it requires lots of practice, a touch of inspiration, and a supportive community of peers and mentors.
In the first installment of our Teen Studio series, writers will explore the many layers of character: how to create a complex hero, how characters and their motivations advance plot and generate conflict, and the essential interplay between the narrative passage and the live action scene.
Through a variety of exercises and readings, our goal is to provide young writers with imaginative challenges and a dose of confidence and craft they can carry forward to complete original works of fiction.
Taught by acclaimed writer and Studio Director Robert Gatewood, this Teen Studio workshop is a unique opportunity for young writers to expand their writing practice with a master mentor.
Ages 13 and up. Teen Studio will continue on Thursday afternoons throughout the school year.
