All stories are fueled by conflict, but in some stories that conflict can be personified as a villain, a bad apple, an agitator, a liar, a usurper, a creep. In this session we will talk about the uses of villains in stirring up stories, and how one might go about creating a villain, employing a villain and maybe even humanizing a villain. We'll look at different sorts of entry points for villains in stories and how one might hope to neutralize a villain, in the end.
