Class: Headshrinking while Character Expanding: How to Build the Most Psychologically Powerful Characters and Relationships with Minister Faust

Next class date is Saturday, June 17, 2023, 9:30-11:30 AM Pacific time.

Who says Astronaut Dave Bowman is a better character than HAL 9000? Right: absolutely no one! To do more than simply move a plot from conflict to resolution, main characters need rich, complex, nuanced psychological lives (and relationships) that will practically write the book for you. Learn narrative head-shrinking to produce realistic people, dynamic dialogue, irresistable conflict, and powerful plots every time you write!

Join Minister Faust for a workshop in which he teaches you how use what’s inside your character’s head.

Classes are taught online and require reliable Internet connection, although in the past participants have logged on from coffee shops, cafes, and even an airplane; a webcam is suggested but not required. They are recorded for the benefit of class members only.

Cost is $99 ($79 for former students, which includes classes/workshops with me in other venues, such as conference or convention workshops and mentoring sessions). Patreon supporters receive a discount or free classes, depending on their support level.

To register for this class, send an email with the following details:

You will be invoiced when the class slot is reserved.

Free scholarships: If you cannot afford a class but really want to take one, apply for a Plunkett Scholarship. Each class has three slots reserved for such students, and the sole criteria is only that you can’t currently afford the class. To apply for a Plunkett, which covers the entire cost,mail me and tell me why you want to take the class in 100 words or less. QUILTBAG and PoC candidates are especially encouraged to apply.

The Plunkett Scholarships are named for Edward Plunkett, who wrote as Lord Dunsany. Scholarships are given out on a rolling basis; I suggest getting them in sooner rather than later. You may apply for up to three classes.
