Taught by Evan Fleischer, a writer, editor, and teacher who has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times, and numerous other publications. He is the Fiction Editor at Hobart.

Looking for an out-of-the-box way to expand your characters and character-building skills? Dungeons & Dragons is a collective storytelling game played amongst friends with dice telling the players what they can and can’t do.

This class aims to take the structure of Dungeons & Dragons and the act of playing the game itself to enable students to conduct a living, ever-deepening study of character and storytelling structures as characters encounter a collective story in real time.

Each student will be responsible for producing 10-20 pages of material over the course of six weeks and will be provided with supplementary videos and text to further the study of character. No prior experience necessary. All are welcome.

Evan will provide feedback outside of class and will encourage all students to do the same. If students end up writing about the character they play, Evan will also leave the door open to aspects of that writing being brought into the game as well.
Throughout the class, Evan will share excerpts from "Meander, Spiral, Explode" and "How To Be The Greatest Improviser in the World," as well as individual video essays that look at Tony Soprano and Anthony Hopkins in Westworld, amongst other items of interest.
