The Psychology of Character Workshop
The Psychology of Character Writing Workshop
with clinical health psychologist, Dr Jodie Fleming & Pamela Cook
EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION (avail to 16 August)
Join Pamela and Jodie for this unique workshop. Discover how using the basics of psychology can provide a greater understanding of your characters and learn how to create protagonists readers will connect and empathise with.
Using her extensive experience as a clinical health psychologist, Jodie will provide a framework for understanding your character's backstory and explain how past events can influence behaviour and relationships.
Tapping into her many years of experience as an author and teacher, Pamela will guide you through a series of exercises resulting in a detailed character profile. Follow-up exercises and readings will help you develop this profile further.
After registration you will have the opportunity to send through questions on the psychology of your characters which Pamela and Jodie will include in the Q & A section of the workshop.
We are very excited about this first-time offered, online learning experience and hope to build on this workshop with related sessions in the future.
Register now for the special price of only $79 (normal $99)
