Event description


Remember When You First Fell In Love?

Ah yes, love is in the air! Come write your own romantic story... perhaps how you met your spouse or partner, or maybe that first kiss. Perhaps your story is about the one who got away. Whatever it is, now's the time to immortalize it in writing.

In this one-day practical workshop, we'll explore how to write compelling romance stories, whether based in true events or entirely made up. We'll learn about all those things that define a good romance, what to put in and what to avoid like the plague.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll have all the practical tools and knowledge to create an awesome, memorable and compelling romantic story...whether your own or a entirely fictional. What a great Valentine's gift for your mate!

What We’ll Cover

This workshop gets right down into the practical application of tips and techniques. No fluff! We’ll cover:

  • Generating romance story ideas

  • How to make your characters (even if they're "real") come alive

  • Understanding dialogue and tension in romance

  • Techniques to improve the way you write fiction immediately

Who Should Take This Workshop

This workshop is ideal if you:

  • want to create a fun, memorable romantic story - either your own or something entirely fictional

  • want to improve the overall quality of your stories

  • want to learn how to write more effectively with dialogue and tension

What We'll Do

In-class time is a mix of teaching writing strategies and showing real-life examples of how they work. We will also spend time developing your story in class so you’ll have a chance to learn as much as we can from each other.

My Role

My role is to coach you through the process, give you constructive feedback, show you the proven techniques that experienced writers use. I will help you develop your ability to create an awesome romantic story...guaranteed!
