The start of a new project is always exciting. You flesh out your concept, dive into your research, start thinking about an outline, and begin developing your characters. But is there a tried and true method for developing compelling and dynamic characters to populate your story? How do you nail down their personality, flesh out their backstory, figure out their wounds and flaws, and set up a satisfying arc for them?

In This 3-Week Clinic You Will:
- Flesh out your main character's personality
- Develop their backstory, their flaws, and their wounds
- Craft a satisfying arc
- Get weekly personalized feedback on your material
Alexandra holds a degree in English Literature from UCLA, which she earned while pursuing acting. As an actress for many years, she learned the ins and outs of dialogue first hand, both on stage and in front of the camera. As the Director of Education at Roadmap, Alex strives to identify the most common hurdles writers face in developing their work and design classes, clinics, and webinars to address these issues. Dialogue in particular is something she's heard execs harp on time and time again, so she developed this class to tackle the subject head-on. In addition, Alex is a writer with several scripts, a novel, a short film (produced during the AT&T Shape Create-A-Thon), and a webseries (coming soon!) under her belt. Prior to Roadmap, Alex worked in live events, law, and education.
Cancellation Policy: You may cancel for a full refund up to 5 days prior to the start of the class. Cancellations requested after this period will be ineligible for refunds.
