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.
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of writing romantic fiction that from her experience of teaching over the years seem to create the most problems for unpublished writers.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...
