Character Development with Fabienne Josaphat

Tuesdays, Sept. 19 – Oct. 24, 7 – 9 p.m.
Fee: $100

A good novel or short story calls for authentic, dynamic characters, and you, writer, must learn to think outside the box. In this course, you will practice the creation of such characters. Through a set of writing exercises, readings, discussions and workshops, you will work on crafting unsympathetic characters, anti-hero types, and three-dimensional characters, all while learning to avoid stereotypes and clichés. 

Fabienne Josaphat was born in Haiti and graduated with an MFA in Creative Writing from Florida International University. She writes fiction, non-fiction and poetry, as well as screenplays. Her first novel, Dancing in the Baron’s Shadow, was released with Unnamed Press in February 2016. She lives in Miami.
