Writing more compelling heroes 4/22

With the rising popularity of dark fiction such as Game of Thrones and young adult dystopias such as The Hunger Games, the classic notion of a hero seems to be losing ground to more complex champions. In this workshop, we’ll discuss examples from pop culture and borrow from the concept of alignment in role-playing games to consider what the popularity of morally ambiguous heroes can teach us about writing better protagonists.
