Romance Writing

Romance is the #1 selling genre in mass-market fiction with readers clamoring for more! To pen a novel romance readers love, you'll need to understand how to meet and exceed their expectations—exactly what this class will focus on.  Whether you're a new or experienced writer, this course will help you broaden your skills and understand exactly what makes a romance reader finish a book with that "Ahh" of satisfaction.

You'll start by learning about the genre of romance and exploring why you fell in love with your favorite romance novels. Then we'll build on these insights. You'll explore how to craft three-dimensional characters your readers will love and how to weave a plot so your story grabs the reader's interest from page one. And of course, you'll gain valuable techniques—your "romance writer's toolbox"—to apply to your own manuscript.

But good writing is good writing, whether you're drafting a romance, a sci-fi adventure, or a thriller. With that in mind, we'll also spend a couple lessons looking at and practicing elements important for any writer to master: setting, pacing, point of view, dialogue, research, mood, and tone. You'll take on fun assignments that will help you hone your craft.

By the time you finish, you'll be able to pick up a book and figure out what makes it a best seller, or why it's been called a classic, or why it appealed to you as a reader. Even better, you'll have mastered tools and techniques so you can add those same elements to your own writing.
