Course and workshop: “How to build a fiction character”

Theory and exercises regarding the construction of a fiction character in narrative, theater and movie script writing. The objective is to build a character which is verisimilar, congruent and, at the same time, with the capacity to transmit a sensation of free will. The course treats the relation between the theme and shape of the text, and the relation between the theme and shape of the language of both the character and the author. Some exercises with concentration on specific details, while working on a wider personal project, if any. Manual of readings and exercises is provided.

5 sessions, 10 hours in total.
