Core Wounds sit in the heart of every person – both real and fictional. An understanding of these deep-seated, harmful “truths” we believe can lead to the creation of three-dimensional characters and emotionally impactful narratives readers will never forget.

This workshop will explore what a Core Wound is, how it goes into the building of a deeply felt and memorable character, and how it influences their actions and reactions in a story. Further, we’ll discuss “matching” Core Wounds, in which a pairing (lovers, hero/villain) have the same wound but manifest it differently – and the potentially perfect complications it creates.

About the Instructor:

Tere Michaels unofficially began her writing career at the age of four, when she learned that people got paid to write stories. It seemed the most perfect and logical job in the world, and after that, her path was never in question.

(The romance writer part was written in the stars—she was born on Valentine’s Day).

She writes happily ever afters in the big city—with heaps of snark, angst, and humor. Her focus is on characters and all the ridiculous ways they trip through life and love. She has written sixteen books, including her popular Faith, Love & Devotion series, the multilayered dystopian saga The Vigilante, and the new Broadway or Bust series.

Nothing makes her happier than knowing she made a reader laugh or smile or cry. It’s her reason for sharing her work with people. She loves hearing from fans and fellow writers and is always available for speaking engagements, visits, and workshops.
