The main character in Robinson’s Gilead, John Ames, is nuanced, subtle, and transformative. The best characters aren’t characters at all; they become people. In this workshop, participants will engage with a series of writing prompts that lead to developing a cast of compelling characters who organize and drive the plot. Exploring the work of Marilynne Robinson will be a core component of our work together.

David B. Seaburn has written seven novels, most recently, Gavin Goode (2019). He has been a Finalist for the National Indie Excellence Award in General Fiction (2011), a second place winner for the TAZ Awards for Fiction (2017); he was shortlisted for the Somerset Award (2018); he was an American Book Fest Finalist for “Best Book” in General Fiction (2019), and a Semi-Finalist in Literary, Contemporary and Satire Fiction for the Somerset Award (2019).
