Think you know your protagonist? How about your antagonist? Have you put them through some really tough therapy? In this workshop, participants will put on the SHRINK hat and dig deeper into their characters’ psyches, or just create new multi-faceted characters to make fiction sparkle with life.
NOTE: Nonmembers who register for this workshop will receive a one-year complimentary membership in the Guild.
