Who Are You Anyway: A Deep Dive Into Creating Believable Characters

Story Facilitator: Laura Packer

Sliding Scale Tuition: $5 minimum, $25 suggested donation, on up to $50

Compelling characters help the storyteller love the story more, and help the audience identify and empathize with the protagonist. Learn how to deepen your characters so they feel more real and more alive to everyone who hears the tale. Expect to try some new, fun, silly things, and to learn more about your own creative process along the way.

While we typically offer 90-minute workshops, explore our 5-hour intensive workshop taught by Dr. Csenge Zalka from Hungary on May 10, 2021. Click here for details/registration with payment plan options.
