Want to create powerful characters and relationships that engage readers, sell books, and live on long after the final page is read?

From Buffy the Vampire Slayer to the Fast and the Furious movies to Harry Potter, a strong ensemble cast does more than just keep people watching (or reading). It steals hearts, captures imaginations and gives its audience a powerful sense of belonging. In this class, New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff will share the psychology and the artistry that goes into putting together a powerful and engaging ensemble cast where every member feels as real, and as important, as your best friend. http://www.writersleague.org/calendar/EnsembleCastsWolff2021
