The best, most appealing protagonists aren’t all sweetness and light. The best antagonists aren’t rotten to the core. Take a two-hour trip behind the facade. With exercises, examples, and discussion, we’ll see ways to make rounder, more credible (even appealing) villains and how to add nuance to your good guys. The process is exciting, challenging—sometimes confronting. Perfect to complete your Valentine’s weekend experience. Bring writing tools and an open mind. Open to all levels, all genre.
