ONLINE WEBINAR: Don’t Look Now! Creating a Bone-chilling Antagonist

Oct 30, 2023

Online event

Workshop with Yvonne Banham aimed at writers at all stages of development, delivered through a combination of presentation and short exercises. Antagonists offer insight into the darker parts of our minds as readers and as writers, a safe space to explore common fears. The emphasis will be on the villains in dark tales of hauntings and the paranormal, but the skills will be transferable to other genres. This event is NOT Free! You must book a ticket.
