Story Through Character with Author, Playwright, Educator Gary Garrison

There are few absolutes in creative writing, but here’s one that’s probably close: “You will never write a story more interesting than the people that are in it. Why? Stories are finite in details; people are infinitely complex.”

This workshop will explore how we construct complicated characters – whether for short stories, novels, cinema, theatre or television – by building detailed behavior that is a generated by age, gender, health, politics, religion, education and so on. How to train our ear to hear how a seven year old speaks versus a seventy year old? And more importantly, how do we translate that onto the blank page? We’ll discover all of this in a four-hour workshop in which we’ll discover simple ways to creatively build character.

This writing workshop will address these two primary questions through writing exercises meant to develop the beginning of a monologue that can be appreciated in any performance medium. The monologue will be constructed as a stand-alone exercise or the beginning of a solo show.
