Bringing Unforgettable Characters to Life

Her work has appeared in Shondaland, The Rumpus, The Vincent Brothers Review, Santa Fe Writers Project, and several print anthologies.

Unforgettable characters are key to successful storytelling—regardless of your preferred genre. In this course, we’ll look at how to make the people on the page become real to readers and how to activate them within the context of your plot. We’ll also look at the beauty and power of mistakes—yours as a writer, and your characters’ mess-ups and flounderings.

Laura Stanfill is the publisher of Forest Avenue Press, which she founded in 2012, and the author of Singing Lessons for the Stylish Canary (Lanternfish Press).
