About the Event

Truly understanding ourselves is one of the most important things writers can do to enhance stories and characters with an authentic and familiar touch that readers will instantly recognize. This workshop will go over some of the basics of psychology and discuss how it both benefits and limits writers. Writers in this workshop will also learn about three major schools of thought on human motivation, tying that into how they craft characters in their stories, leaving the workshop with three methods of character creation they can use for their future writing.
