What Others Have Said:
"Lisa was warm, friendly, and very knowledgeable. I appreciated the stories she shared about various interviews she conducted and the lessons I could apply to my own experiences. I also appreciated her time and willingness to answer any of my own questions and the ideas and resources she provided me. At the end of this workshop, I felt like I had some insider tips I could use to begin my own journey. At the conclusion of our time together, I felt empowered to begin the journey of telling people's stories." ~Marian Shehata

Bullies & Baddies---Understanding the Antagonist
All fiction must have a core antagonist. The antagonist is the reason for the story problem, but the term “antagonist” can be highly confusing. Without a proper grasp of how to use antagonists, the plot can become a wandering nightmare for the author and the reader.
This class will help you understand how to create solid story problems (even those writing literary fiction) and then give you the skills to layer conflict internally and externally.
Bullies & Baddies---Understanding the Antagonist Gold
This is a personal workshop to make sure you have a clear story problem. And, if you don’t? I’ll help you create one and tell the story you want to tell. This is done by phone/virtual classroom and by appointment. Expect to block off at least a couple hours.
