What makes a convincing fictional character and how do you create them? In this one-day workshop, students will explore different ways of sourcing, creating and developing characters in their own work and will analyse the approaches of a range of contemporary writers. By experimenting with different approaches, students will gain a new understanding of the role of character in their own work and that of other writers. You may even be surprised by who you meet on the page! Clare’s first novel, All the Good Things, was published by Viking, Penguin in 2017 and her short story collection, How the Light Gets In, in 2018 by Influx Press.
