Hook your reader from the beginning

Do you want to:

  • Create characters that jump off the page and hook your reader?
  • Turn two-dimensional characters into multi-dimensional human beings?

  • Dig deeper into your characters' backstories, motivations, and beliefs?
  • Introduce your characters in an unforgettable way

In this course, we'll explore how you can do all of this and more. We'll delve deep into psychology and what makes us human – so that we can create characters who feel human, too.

Whatever type of stories you tell, this course is jam-packed with ideas, techniques, and activities to help you flesh out your characters – or even create new ones!
