Excavating a Character's Inner Wounds with Meredith Doench
This workshop will examine the various types of inner wounds that may be festering in main characters. Emotional wounds have the power to influence a protagonist's thoughts and behavior long after the event or trauma occurred. Understanding how these manifest in a character's life can be a strong tool of the writer's toolbox. Come to the workshop with a character in mind, and we will work to develop them into three dimensional characters with an interesting past. For this workshop, some experience is helpful.
