Your One Stop Shop for all things Character!

After years of writing, studying, editing and coaching, I’m excited to introduce a new, creatively organic, step-by-step approach to character that draws on the wisdom of many great dramatists and thinkers.  By the end of the workshop you will walk away with:

  • A 9 Element Character Template that You Can Use to Create Every Character You Ever Write!

  • An Understanding of The 5 Step Secret to Creating a Solid Character Arc

  • The Secrets to Unlocking the Power of Archetypes (Including How to Turn Archetypes on Their Heads for Wild Originality)

  • Tools to Create (not just one but) a Full Cast of Real, 3 Dimensional Characters

  • How and when to use a foil, a mentor, an antagonist and a confidante.

  • An Understanding of where most writers Fail When Crafting Their Characters

  • Uncovering your character’s wound to create depth and complexity.

  • Tools to Assess When Your Character is Complete –>The Walmart Test
