Crafting Character Voice

Compelling characters have very specific perspectives and distinct voices. Learn how to tap into the way your characters experience the world so that you can convey their unique voices in your writing. Through exercises and discussion, we will look at how we as writers can understand our characters, their motivations, and their voices.

Lecture replays are available after the free trial ends. To end your trial early, email .
