Roberta Trahan is the best-selling author of The Dream Stewards Series and active member of the NW writing community. Over 15 years experience as a speaker/instructor/presenter at many regional writing and publishing events, including Jet City Comicon, Write on the Sound, PNWC, Edmonds CC ArtsNow Program, Bellevue College, NW Bookfest, PNBA Fall Show and others. (www.robertatrahan.com). Creating characters that readers love or love to hate is the goal of every writer, but how do you do it? What makes a protagonist or antagonist believable, sympathetic, heroic or enigmatic? Using a five-focus profiling tool you will develop in class, learn how to build characters that are not only compelling but also complex enough to carry your story. Bring a brief bio of 1-2 main characters from your current work in progress to workshop in class, or start the process from scratch!
