Writing the Romance Novel Workshop

Do you yearn to write a romance? If so, you need to know what sets romances apart from other types of fiction. The "Writing the Romance Novel" workshop from Writer's Digest University explores the specific factors that make up the specialized world of romance. I teach this course, and have a session about to begin.

The workshop consists of six one-week sessions. Each session will include online lectures and textbook reading assignments, along with a writing assignment to be submitted to the instructor for private review. In addition, work will be posted each session for group review and feedback. You will:

*    Learn how the hero of an action novel differs from the hero of a romance
*    Master the tricky business of putting your hero and heroine together and keeping them together-yet-apart until the story's close
*    Create the sexual tension that will have your readers turning the pages late into the night
*    Discover what conventions must be followed and what rules can be broken for readers to embrace your work

My next session begins on May 28. For more information, or to sign up for my course, go here:

Hope to see you there!
