Two multi-published authors, Rachel Bailey and Anna Campbell offer an insight into what’s hot in the market right now. Participants will learn about the latest romantic trends in both single title and category romance; the range of genres; structure and writing styles; popular themes and hooks; and the path to publication.
Participants will have a chance to formulate the premise for a romance novel and learn how conflict and characterisation work together to create an unforgettable read. This fun, hands-on workshop will point every participant in the right direction to pursue romance writing as a career.
