Mythic Archetypes: Creating a Scintillating Cast of Characters

Saturday, August 5, 2017

Garden C

How do we create a diverse and interesting cast of characters to populate our stories? One way is to examine some of the universal archetypes that are found throughout art, film, and literature— and that’s exactly what we’ll do in the workshop. By exploring some of our favorite heroes, sidekicks, mentors, and shadows, we’ll discover insight into crafting characters that are unique and distinctive in both their personalities and roles.
