Shannan Albright “Foray into Worldbuilding”

Shannan Albright takes you on an interactive journey of worldbuilding. For both plotters and pansters, worldbuilding can be simple, or as complicated as you wish. For writing in all genres from elaborate sci-fi sagas to sweet hometown contemporaries, you will find worldbuilding as integral as GMC and Character Sheets.

Afternoon Session:

Saranna DeWylde “How to Craft Compelling Villains”

Villains seems to be a common theme among workshops that many industry professionals have in their arsenal. So what makes mine special?

Perspective.

I am a romance writer, but I’m a former corrections officer and I worked with the baddest of the bad day to day. The prison is where they lived, so you could say I was in their home every day. I observed their behaviors and interactions with other predators and those they saw as prey. So come learn what makes a villain and villain, why we need to give them voice and how to do it in such a way that makes the reader root for them just enough to keep turning the pages.
