Author of Mold and the Poison Plot, and The Makers of Monsters, Lorraine Gregory will be holding an “Inside the mind of your antagonist” workshop to help people create effective villains and baddies.

We will look at well known villains from children books and analyse what made them work so well – including aspects like motivation, backstory, mirroring, language and plot.
Together, we will then  explore the basic tropes and stereotypes often used for baddies and consider what needs to be avoided and what could be updated.  Finally,  we will examine ways people could improve their own antagonist in their current M.S.
