The purpose of story is to reveal a transformation. Without worthy antagonists our protagonist will not experience a surrender. And without a surrender there can be no transformation. Join me for this one-hour workshop where we’ll explore through writing exercises and discussion the necessary tools to build a story with powerful antagonists.
