Giving the Devil His Due: Building Multi-dimensional Bad Guys
It’s easy to appreciate a sympathetic character, but what about those that are difficult, gritty, or downright mean? How do we add emotional nuance and inspire readers to connect with fundamentally unlikable players? In this generative workshop, we will employ point of view and setting to help us uncover meaningful and surprising aspects of our darker characters. Writers will leave this workshop with ideas and material they can incorporate into a short story or novel.
Taught by Angela Mitchell, author of the story collection, UNNATURAL HABITATS & OTHER STORIES (WTAW Press).
