Using her books as a springboard, Sofie discusses the importance of character in her own writing. She examines the different ways we can create strong characters and their importance in building a compelling story. Sofie’s audience learns how to create characters of their own and to develop the stories that lie within them. The sessions end with real life ‘interviews’, where students play the characters they have created. This has proved to be enormous fun, and a wonderful way to understand how characters can be brought to life.
How character can drive plot. The ways in which characters hold the keys to creating compelling stories. The power of detail in successful character development.
