Writing Character

with
Constance Hale

In her workshop, Writing Character, Constance Hale offers pointers for observing and capturing human complexity.

How do you capture the physicality of a person so that a reader would recognize your character in the line at a grocery store? How do you get at the person’s inner life, which takes a different set of skills? What’s the secret of nailing both at once? And how do you treat yourself—author, narrator, first-person voice—as a character?

We will use prompts from a book on the craft by Connie and other experts from the Writers Grotto in San Francisco. (It is part of the Lit Starts series.)

This workshop will change the way you write about people.

Constance Hale is a San Francisco–based journalist and the author of cheeky writing manuals, a book for adults on hula, and a picture book for children set in Hawaii. Her articles have appeared in The New York Times, the LA Times, and many magazines. In 2019, she published Writing Character, a book chockful of thoughts, tips, and prompts that is part of the Lit Starts series, produced by The Writers Grotto. sinandsyntax.com.
