How to Write Winning Opponents—Even if They Lose in the End.

Online via Zoom, Wednesdays, July 8-29, 6:30-8:30 PM, PT

Even if you don’t want a mustache-twirling bad-guy in your book, you still need someone (yes, a sentient someone) to be a worthy adversary for your hero. In this four-week class, we’ll learn the components of opponents, and  how your antagonist may hold more keys to your hero than you think. 


Interior Monologue: How to Create Eavesdrop-Worthy Thoughts for Your Viewpoint Characters

Online via Zoom, Wednesdays, August 5-26, 6:30-8:30 PM, PT

Dialog is how your character talks to others; interior monologue is how they talk to themselves. In this four-week class, we will explore how the rich, inner world of your character’s thoughts reveals their sense of place, their relationship with their body, their view of their own history, and their secret ties with other characters.
