Bring Your Character to Life
“I thoroughly enjoyed this exercise… it really helped me work out the kinks in a character I’ve been struggling with.” – Workshop Participant.
“This course was fun. The group managed to produce some great work, and I couldn’t help but have a go myself.” – Workshop Facilitator.
This nano course documents the creative coaching consultation I had with Jonell Rowe — a professional writer, film director and founder of the award-winning production company, Lionstooth. Jonell’s aim for this consultation is to use the methods provided in the workbook to develop character arcs and profiles that are so convincing and concrete—to the point where they can acclimatise to any world he develops in his narrative.
Whether you’re writing a screenplay, novel, blog series or case study, characters are the driving force behind your story. The resources in this nano course will assist you in the creation of well-formed, believable, engaging beings that will make your audience want to watch, listen or read your plot to the end and even be left gasping for a sequel!
Who this course is for:
- This nano course has been especially successful with poets, monologue and flash fiction writers, but of course, anyone with an interest in literature and literacy development is welcome to join.
- This nano course is meant for writers at all levels who are looking for support in developing a character or characters for a story, struggling with writers’ block or building a portfolio of work for an arts and culture-based course. No prior experience in writing is needed, but your passion for creativity might come in handy!
