Anti-heroes and Villains: Crafting Flawed Characters We Love to Hate 2019
June 6 - 9, 2019
Create deep veins of backstory and characterization to shape villains and anti-heroes in middle grade and young adult novels.
Antagonist, anti-hero, anti-heroine, whatever the term, a novel must have opposition. Who better to infuse conflict than a well-crafted villain?
To make a villain believable, they need motivations and guiding rules that readers can appreciate. Today’s best villains, even in all their wicked whims and power plays, also read as sympathetic.
Join authors Patrice Caldwell and Julie Dao in this engaging workshop to deepen the shadow-side of your novel.
Writers will have the opportunity to submit the opening chapter of their work-in-progress for review.
All-Inclusive Event Cost: $999.00
