Meet your Drill Instructors who will be drilling you intensely for 50 minutes on how to create awesome, 3-dimensional characters like a pro!!

Multi-award-winning writer and Editor Peter Wacks will drill you in Empathy. How does a writer create a character that truly catches the heart of a reader, including those who guard the gate?

Prolific, multi-award-winning sci-fi and fantasy writer Deby Fredericks will drill you in Backstory. How does backstory contribute to a believable, 3-dimensional character, and how does it relate to their place within the story?

Jeff Lee, who has written copious amounts of gaming material for EN World’s Trailseeker, Flaming Crab Games, Frog God Games, Gun Metal Games, Kobold Press, Louis Porter Jr. Design, Misfit Studios, Rogue Genius Games, Wayfinder magazine, and Wayward Rogues Publishing (WHEW!) will drill you in Personality vs. Physicality. Where did your hero get that scar? What is that behind your heroine's eyes? How does a writer make the most of the synchronicity (and sometimes dichotomy) of their characters’ physical traits vs. personality in creating a 3-dimensional character?
