“Creating characters to carry a story”

In this one-hour session we will look at the ways in which you can put together a convincing cast of characters for long-form fiction. We will consider the challenges of writing the hero and the anti-hero, and the ways in which we can make our characters more human and therefore more emotionally authentic for our readers.
