About This Class

In this class we will explore how to bring about a full sense of a central character by using the surroundings to show facets of their personality. 

The class starts by establishing what setting is and then moves onto deconstructing texts in order to understand how the technique works. Various exercises allow you to practice the technique yourself, ready to put to use in your final assignment.

If you wish to improve your characterisation skills in fiction writing, this is the class for you. So enrol and get ready to write!
