Event Details

My Characters Are BORING!

You've got a well-thought out plot, great setting, an awesome bad guy, but whoa! What's this? Your protagonist and sidekick are deadly dull and boring?!? Now what?

In this one-day practical workshop, we'll explore how to create really compelling, full characters with strengths, weaknesses, habits and quirks. No more flat characters for your stories!

By the end of this workshop, you’ll have all the practical tools and knowledge to create awesome, memorable and compelling characters no matter what genre you’re writing in.

What We’ll Cover

This workshop gets right down into the practical application of tips and techniques. No fluff! We’ll cover:

  • Creating someone from nothing...where to begin

  • What makes some characters more interesting than others, and what we can learn from the masters.

  •  Understanding how characters must change as the story progresses, and how to build this in upfront.

  • Techniques to improve the way you create characters immediately

Who Should Take This Workshop

This workshop is ideal if you:

  • want to create memorable, compelling characters with intention and confidence

  • want to improve the overall quality of your stories

  • already have some practice writing creatively

What We'll Do

In-class time is a mix of teaching writing strategies and showing real-life examples of how they work. We will also spend time developing characters in class so you’ll have a chance to learn as much as we can from each other.

My Role

My role is to coach you through the process, give you constructive feedback, show you the proven techniques that experienced writers use.  I will help you develop your ability to create awesome characters for your next story...guaranteed!

Money Back Guarantee

I'm so confident my workshop will give you the confidence to create characters more effectively that I'm offering a 100% personal money back guarantee. If you're not completely satisfied by the end of the workshop, I'll give you your money back no questions asked.
