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.
