Program Type:Lectures & Presentations
Most stories are built on a convincing conflict that not only fuels the plot but also creates drama and tension. No matter the style, period, or author of a work of literature, most conflicts are created by an antagonist. In this class you will discover how to build and bring to life vivid, complex, and memorable antagonists. We will perform written exercises in order to develop a well-rounded and in-depth antagonist. Join us on Thursdays, October 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th, 2022 from 12-2 pm. We will develop inner (thoughts and feelings) and outer (appearance, habits, behavior) lives for our antagonists and see how that can lead us to richer and more interesting stories. We will learn to elevate the drama in a story by using an antagonist as an opposing force to the protagonist.
