Panel: Literary Characterization

This session will examine literary devices to craft captivating characters and how plot and setting relate to character development, while considering the following questions: Why are characters vital to a narrative craft? Why is it important for a writer to reveal a character’s preoccupations and emotions? What do details reveal about a character? What makes a character memorable and believable? Participants will also engage in hands-on exercises that can be applied to the novel, short story, drama, or creative non-fiction.
