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.
