Learning Character From The Masters
The thought of creating a cast of characters that are all strong, original and fully fleshed out can send any writer into a panic.  However, after years of study, practice and coaching, I’m excited to introduce a creatively organic, step-by-step approach to character that draws on the wisdom of many great dramatists and thinkers.  From Jung to Joseph Campbell, from Truby and Seger to Levi-Straus, you will be introduced to powerful insights and approaches that have had a profound impact on writers all over the world.
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 Three 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
  • An Understanding of Where Most Writers Fail When Crafting Their Characters
  • Tools to Assess When Your Character is Complete –>The Walmart Test
