Explore what makes a character a three-dimensional person. Physical description, mannerisms, clothing, relationships with other characters, body language and dialogue all play a part in breathing life into a character. This workshop includes discussion, readings and writing exercises designed to help participants see their character from all angles in order to create depth and complexity.
