Class Description: No matter what genre you write, there’s a good chance your plot contains some kind of romance. Every well-crafted romantic plot line is built on three essential elements, without which the love story falls flat. There is a science to the art of crafting a compelling, emotionally charged, and satisfying romance that hits these three crucial notes.

This class covers:

  • the three essential elements of romance
  • the crucial moments that cannot be skipped over or left out of any romantic plot line
  • how these elements influence and shape the larger plot arc
  • the characteristics needed to craft a romance your YA readers will fall in love with

This hands-on, interactive workshop offers attendees the opportunity to practice the concepts taught so they will leave fully equipped to apply what they’ve learned in their own writing.

NOTE: Mini Workshops include afternoon sessions for the day they take place.
