Description of Class
Struggling with flat or unauthentic characters?
To be interesting, our characters must be complex—with hidden wounds and traumas deep in their subconscious that affect the way they react to events.
In this intensive one-night workshop led by author Amin Ahmad (THE CARETAKER; THE LAST TAXI RIDE), you will use the concept of “out-writing” to explore the depth and complexity of your character.
Just as the tip of an iceberg hints at its submerged depths, what we show on the page must resonate with our character’s hidden past.
This class is open to all writers of fiction. Get ready to dive into the deep!
“[Amin] Ahmad ably brings to life a side of the city rarely seen by those who take for granted their nannies, doormen and cabbies.”
“[Amin] Ahmad’s characters…all behave in a nuanced, human fashion.”
