    Each class had a "primary" writer, though many writers ultimately collaborated on each class.

    Daniel Erickson was SWTOR Lead Writer, supervising the overall writing team. Hall Hood was promoted to occupy that position after Erickson left BioWare.

    Bounty Hunter: Randy Begel
    Imperial Agent: Alexander Freed, who has since left BioWare.
    Jedi Consular: Joanna Berry, who has since left BioWare.
    Jedi Knight: Hall Hood was primary; Drew Karpyshyn was a contributor.
    Republic Trooper: Charles Boyd
    Sith Inquisitor: Rebecca Harwick
    Sith Warrior: Neil Pollner
    Smuggler: Hall Hood was primary; Jennifer Hepler was a contributor.

    To give credit where it is due, most of this information was retrieved from this post on the SWTOR Official Forums. Be careful reading the thread, though, as it does contain some spoilers for the various class stories. Two posts that may especially interest you are here and here, as they link to and discuss thoughts on writing that Freed posted on his personal blog.
