The best characters are much more than their physical characteristics; they are fully rounded, multi-dimensional, and capable of plunging a reader into an emotionally fulfilling adventure, another world and another life. In this workshop we will look at the psychology of characterization, self concept, backstory, and the emotional arc as tools for creating intricate and complex characters with conflicts, motivations, challenges and pasts that bring them alive on the page.
