News of a Writing Romantic Fiction Workshop...

As I've been talking about romance novels in e-books this week, I thought you might like to know that there's a Writing Romantic Fiction workshop being held in Nottingham on Saturday 19th May,
10 am-4pm (including a 1 hour lunch break).

Nottingham Writers' Club is hosting the workshop and the tutor for the day is Mills and Boon Presents author, Kate Walker.

Kate had her first novel accepted in 1984
and celebrated 25 years as a professional author in 2010.

Here are some details of what the workshop will include...

It gives an introduction to all the skills needed for success, from initial research to the final submission of the typescript. With advice and exercises, Kate will guide you through creating realistic characters, sustaining pace and conflict, packing emotional punch, writing sex scenes and crafting a satisfying ending. If you're just starting out writing romantic fiction or you've written a manuscript or two, this one is for you.
The workshop also covers the main aspects of writing romantic fiction that from her experience of teaching over the years seem to create the most problems for unpublished writers.

If you're within travelling distance of Nottingham and are interested then you'll find the details here .

There's a (PDF) booking form with the details of how much it costs, and it's easy to download and print off.

I'm really looking forward to the day...

Kate does a great workshop, Carol. Unfortunately I can't make that one as I'm on my way to Norfolk that day for a week's holiday. Do give Kate my best regards when you see her.

Hi Sally. Hopefully the weather will be good for your holiday. :-)
I'll pass on your regards too. I'm really looking forward to the workshop.

Would love to be able to go to that, but it's too far away when I have other conferences this year. Heard Kate at an RNA one-day thing in Newcastle years ago and she was excellent.

I have the same problem with events being too far away from me, Rosemary.
