The Northeast Ohio Chapter of RWA is pleased to announce our 2017 Online Workshops. Check back often for updates to the calendar! Upcoming Workshops
Writing the Romantic Novella
Presenter: Catherine Chant
Dates: September 3-30
In this workshop you will learn what a novella is, how it’s more than word count that separates it from a novel, and how to successfully craft one of your own.
Lesson topics include: Scope and Pacing, Character Development, Conflict, Plot and Format. At the end of the workshop, you will have a brief outline of a novella you can start working on this year, a list of prospective publishers to submit your work to, and some tips for self-publishing your novella at Amazon, if you prefer to go the indie route.
The workshop includes exercises with every lesson designed to strengthen the concepts discussed.
