Give Your Great Characters a Great Story to Play In

No character can stay static forever. Learn how your character grow and evolve, or sink and devolve, all the way to an emotionally satisfying end. 

By the end of this course, you’ll have a well-structured story built around your character! 

In Plotting Character-Driven Stories, we’ll dive deep into character arcs, character development, and cast dynamics. Forget about the formulae or the pre-written hero journey. You can choose exactly what story your characters will tell, from heart-wrenching tragedies to sweeping victories. The literary world is in your hands.
