Ever want to write a really good villain… or bas one as the case is?

Anne Emery may be able to provide insight with her workshop “Villains: The Characters we Love to Hate.”

The award-winning author will host a workshop on Oct. 13 in Charlottetown focused on the development of villains.

Emery will lead participants in a day-long event, exploring the factors that contribute on what makes a villain engaging and how villains can be used to drive a story narrative.

Participants will define what they enjoy in a villain, share villains from their own stories and will also have the opportunity to create new characters based on the material covered in the workshop.

Emery is a Halifax lawyer and award-winning author of the Collins-Burke mystery series. Author of nine novels, Anne has won a number of awards and writing prizes, including the 2007 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Novel for her novel “Sign of the Cross.” 


“Villains: The Characters We Love to Hate will take place at the Haviland Club on Oct. 13 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Cost is $45 for P.E.I. Writers Guild members and $55 for non-members.
