Creating characters that readers love or love to hate is the goal of every writer, but how do you do it? Join Roberta Trahan and find out! Please register.

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.

Best-selling author of The Dream Stewards Series, and long-time member of the PNW writing community. Former VP/Program Director of The Seattle Freelances, and over 15 years experience as a presenter/speaker/instructor at many regional writing and publishing events: PNWA, NW Bookfest, Write on the Sound, PNBA Fall Tradeshow, ECC Arts Now, and more.
