Humber College Masterclass: Inners & Outers – Character Work from the Actor’s Training
October 24 at 4pm
The TIFA/Humber Creative Writing Masterclass Series is a partnership between the Humber School for Writers and the Toronto International Festival of Authors. Launching in the Fall or 2020 as part of the Festival’s digital slate, the series will provide an exclusive array of virtual writing masterclasses for the Festival’s audience. Classes will be led by renowned Humber School for Writers faculty.
Each Masterclass will be 90-minutes long and address a specific aspect of writing craft and life. Classes will be held via one of Humber College’s virtual platforms, with a group of up to 40 students. The Masterclasses are open to all levels of writers, and will take place daily during TIFA.
From her early work in theatre, Masterclass facilitator Marina Endicott offers practical techniques for realizing and deepening character. Bring a character you’re working on already, or create one from scratch to see how exploring and defining psychological, physical and emotional traits can turn a paper sketch into a living human, alive to circumstance and consequence. Space is limited and registration required.
Reduced rates are available to TIFA Patrons and Festival Friends and recent graduates of the Humber School for Writers.
