Looking to add some sizzle into your writing? Join us for this romance writing workshop for writers who love romance (and those who aren’t comfortable with it but want to be!)
Whether you are interested in writing a romance novel or including romantic elements in a short story, this workshop will educate you in clichés to avoid and pitfalls in writing romance, as well as how to take the same tired tropes and put new spins on them to make them fresh and original. We will try out some exercises in class so bring materials to write with. This is going to be a safe environment where you don’t need to feel pressured to share your steamy romance scenes–but maybe you will want to.
Explicit topics may be discussed. Due to the naughty nature of this class, 18+ writers only.
