Instructor: Kristen Lamb
Price: General Admission $55 USD
Where: On DEMAND
When: At Your Computer (Or on Supported Devices)
Villains are some of the most powerful characters in all of literature. Create them well and they become the substance of legend. Fail to craft them properly, though, and the reader is left with a dull, mustache-twirling plot puppet.
Flat, lifeless and…forgettable.
This class is designed to train you to dig deep into the human psyche to craft villains readers won’t be able to stop talking about.
Superlative villains make for high stakes, high tension, and a knuckle-biting, page-turning read (regardless of genre).
Virtually any genre can employ (or deploy) the villain, and this class will show you how to use your villain(s) to craft a story readers won’t be able to put down.
