In this interactive workshop, we’ll work together to create characters who are messy, engaging, troubled, powerful, scary — you name it. Through a series of exercises, some individually and some in teams, we’ll explore a variety of techniques for creating characters that jump off the page and come to life in the minds of your readers.
