Don’t be fooled. That gentle stirring is your next character raging to break free. Let them in.
Building Character & Playing God is The Tuxedo Project’s fall creative writing workshop designed to introduce you to those nagging characters you’ve been sitting with for a while — no matter how much other writing you may have produced.
Honoring the importance of writing alone and recognizing the power of writing others, this program is ideal for writers and storytellers seeking to develop new characters, sharpen their narrative voices, and deepen their relationship to their writing practice.
This program is free and open to writers of all experience levels. It also requires active participation in all exercises and readings given in-person and remotely. Although you are not required to share the writing you produce, you are encouraged to do so. This is a space for safe and collaborative learning and experimentation.
