Ink Academy Masterclass: Create Compelling Characters with Edmund Gordon

  • Library Covent Garden London WC2N 4BD (map)

How can you ensure you’ve created a truly compelling, interesting and authentic protagonist? How do you avoid writing two-dimensional secondary characters – and create a strong antagonist without cliché or caricature? And perhaps most importantly of all: how can you ensure that what you’re writing is held together by subtle, convincing character development?

Even more than plot, narrative voice, dialogue and setting, a character has the potential to make your book truly memorable. But it isn’t always easy to create complex and unique characters, let alone make their developmental journey satisfying and compelling. In this masterclass, award-winning author and creative writing tutor Edmund Gordon will teach you how to avoid the pitfalls that writers can fall into when approaching character.
