О курсе

At the center of a good story are the characters in it. In this course aspiring writers will discover how to build and bring to life complex, vivid and unforgettable characters. We will study the choices a writer makes to bring all characters to life on the page, and we will perform written exercises in order to develop a variety of writing and pre-writing techniques, in order to create a variety of characters. We will learn how to use our own life experiences, and the people we know (and how not to!). We will develop inner (thoughts and feelings) and outer (appearance, habits, behavior) lives for our characters and see how that can lead us to richer and more interesting stories. We will breathe life into our characters and let them surprise us....

I loved this course! Extremely useful and hands on. The course instructor was really impressive, both informative and empathetic, both arty and to the point. Totally admired her style of instruction.

The course was very well-structured and challenging. The instructor is very experienced and good, thus used relevant materials for this course, be it the guests, or the assignments, or the examples.

The assignments are hard to understand and not well explained. They are also completely irrelevant to the lessons of the week.

Has been a great course but I would have loved more readings and a little bit more formal rules to sketch our own characters.

Good information in the videos. The assignments were difficult and didn't seem related to the material from the lectures.

I liked a lot of what was said. I wish I had some more concrete advice for building character - if such a thing exists.

Great material but students grading other student's work becomes a problem if they can prohibit another from passing.

Good course, but assignment instructions were difficult to understand at times and no examples were given.

In the second course, the talks were not as useful for the assignments, particularly in week 2.

It is good but I think the lectures are a little disjointed from each other and the exercises.

Adequate intro course. Could gather roughly the same info with a bit of browsing the internet.

This course could use some work, but nevertheless I learned a bit more than I already knew.

It was good, reviwing other students writing can be fun or very irritating.

Excellent lectures. Assignments were a little too "exercisey" for me.

I didn't find this course particularly helpful or useful. I'm not sure why, there was a disconnect somewhere, I think maybe that I didn't receive the help that I feel I still need on the subject of how to create a great, memorable, believable character. Also, some of the assignments were confusing. Nothing really stands out about this course, and it was actually a bit boring and I don't feel I learned anything related to the subject. Everything about this class needs some work: the videos, the instruction/syllabus/content, and the assignments. Sorry, I didn't like it. =(

I found the assignments very challenging to understand as there was very little clarity in the way they were written. Had to constantly reach out to mentors and forum discussions to actually understand what the instructor wanted.

Overall, I did not enjoy this course as much as I enjoyed the other three courses of this series.

It was quite simple but the tips are quite general. It is good for beginners. However, it was a good excersize and was fun in a way.

I didn't think there were many solid pointers...and not much that was original coming from the instructor herself.
