Convincing readers that the characters you’ve imagined are full, complex human beings is essential to creating effective fiction. In this class, we’ll focus on how to construct the people that will populate your fiction by studying techniques used by writers such as Ottessa Moshfegh, Flannery O’Connor, ZZ Packer, and Joy Williams.
