What you'll learn in this kids writing class:

Everybody loves the rise of a hero – faced with adversity, he or she chooses to do good in the world. But what about those who go the other way? Why do Lord Voldemort, Darth Vader, the Wicked Witch and Loki all choose a darker path? Books, movies, and TV are full of fascinating villains and foes, all with their own backstories – and here’s where our adventure begins!

In this workshop, you’ll turn the accepted hero vs. villain storyline on its head. Writing from your favorite anarchist’s prospective, you’ll dive into who this person is and explain to the world how and why he or she prefers to sow chaos and fear while battling the forces of good. You’ll give them the backstory they deserve – and maybe we’ll see they’re a little more human than we thought.

There’s limited space for being part of your favorite villain’s history – take the time to register now, or you’ll regret it
