This is an AMAZING class!
Not only is Kris the most engaging, thoughtful and competent instructor imaginable, she also shifted my mindset regarding "backstory" by 180°, taught me to "see" that backstory IS story, and she provided tons of tools and exercises to get the job done.
I enjoyed every single sentence in this class and learned WAY more about writing than just the nuts and bolts of "backstory".
Kris' comments and suggestions have helped me enormously. I can't wait to use her interesting suggestions that make the story better than it is. She has broadened the character's background for the actions that happen in the book. Many, many thanks for these insights to my story.
Best backstory workshop I have ever done. Such detailed, nuanced insights and clear examples. It's the first time I feel properly guided w.r.t. backstory. Previously, I have only received vague guidelines that I did not know how to apply. This class has given me a lot more confidence in dealing with backstory successfully.
