Jane Austen’s supporting characters deserve their time in the spotlight, and it’s time for Mr. Collins (Pride and Prejudice) and Mr. Elton (Emma) to have their moment.

Let's look at the "DNA" of these comedic characters, why they didn’t end up with the leading ladies of these novels, and what we can use to create our own lovable, goofball characters. Expert Diana Dimarco will have readers and writers alike gaining a deepened appreciation for Mr. Collins and Mr. Elton, while getting to try their hand at writing a character sketch of their own comedic character.

Diana DiMarco holds a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and has been an avid reader since she was a young girl. Discovering Jane Austen has been a defining moment in her life, and she wants to share her passion and knowledge with as many people as she can.
