The Northeast Ohio Chapter of RWA is pleased to announce our 2018 Online Workshops. Check back often for updates to the calendar! Upcoming Workshops
Conflict and the Category Romance
Presenter: Susan Meier
Dates: October 1-26
About the Workshop
Workshop Overview: Is there a difference between the conflicts of a single title romance and a category romance? Is there a difference between the conflicts of a long category and a short category? What purposes do conflicts serve in a category romance? Is there a way to use your conflict for more than a stumbling block for the romance? Can it also push your story forward?
Join multi-published category romance author Susan Meier as she answers these questions and more in her workshop CONFLICT AND THE CATEGORY ROMANCE. See how to use banter, why we use a ‘format’ not a formula, how mining your characters’ pasts creates the richest conflicts, and learn tricks for getting emotion and “layering” into your story.
About the Presenter
A one-time legal secretary and director of a charitable foundation, Susan Meier found her bliss when she became a full-time novelist for Harlequin. She’s visited ski lodges and candy factories for “research” and works in her pajamas.
But the real joy of her job is creating stories about women for women. In her over 70 published novels, she’s tackled issues like infertility, losing a child, and becoming widowed, and worked through them with her characters.
Cost for the workshop is $20 (USD). You do not have to be an RWA member or a members of NEORWA to take our workshops!
