Screenwriter and producer Roger Schulman will lead an exciting workshop on creating compelling characters in your writing. Learn what makes good characters tick, what makes bad characters just sit there, and just maybe a little bit more about yourself. And you’ll come away with a tool chest from which you can pick and choose the techniques you prefer to build unique characters so remarkable that sometimes they’ll write their dialog for you.
Free and open to the public.
