Seasons of the Character

**COMING SOON** What is a Character Arc? Why do we need one? J A Browne leads you through her flagship workshop where you'll learn how to plot, in detail, the "seasons" of the character. Each "season" is a phase of the character's journey. You'll learn how to handle minor characters, how your villain (antagonist) impacts the story and how the hero/heroine (protagonist) will change as they triumph and what they'll learn along the way.

Think of any of your favourite characters from your favourite books. They've all been on a journey. A physical one and an emotional one. By the end of their journey, they've learnt something, changed for the better, experienced something which leaves a lasting imprint upon who they are. Authors hope, that in sharing their stories, it's not only the character that is affected, but the reader, too.
In this flagship workshop, J A Browne will lead you through the next stage of story-telling. Once a character has been created, it is the Character Arc which authors then must create.
Young writers will be provided with highly detailed, purposeful PDFs prior to the session in order to get the most value out of the session and be productive.
