OWL Monday Scholars
Creative Writing: The Craft of Character
Mondays ~ 12:30 - 2:00 pm
February 5, 12, 26 and March 5
Oliver Wolcott Library
Monday Scholars is a weekly series that meets in the library’s
Jamie Gagarin Community Room. Each week, a new lecture topic is
watched and then discussed by all who attend. All you need to do is
come ready to engage your mind and participate in discussion.
Join librarian Patricia Moore as she facilitates this online course.
 Each week we will watch 30 minutes of Amy Bloom’s teaching,
then do 30 minutes of writing using the tools we learned that day,
and the final 30 minutes of each class will be spent sharing our work.

About the Course:
At the center of a good story are the characters in it. In this course
aspiring writers will discover how to build and bring to life complex,
 vivid and unforgettable characters. We will study the choices a
 writer makes to bring all characters to life on the page. We will learn
how to use our own life experiences, the people we know,
develop inner thoughts and feelings and much more.

About the Professor:
Amy Bloom is the Distinguished University Writer in Residence
and Director of the Shapiro Center for Creative Writing at Wesleyan.
Previously, she was senior lecturer of Creative Writing in the department
of English at Yale University. Bloom has been nominated for the
National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
