Heat Rising: A New Romance Workshop with Michelle Helliwell

On Saturday, February 9, the heat will rise at the Haviland Club in downtown Charlottetown, as writers of all levels gather to learn more about romance writing in the twenty-first century. Open to both members and non-members of the PEI Writers’ Guild, this sizzling workshop, entitled Heat Rising: Writing the Romantic Revolution, promises to warm participants up from the mid-winter cold.

Led by Michelle Helliwell of the Romance Writers of Atlantic Canada, this day-long workshop will cover romantic arcs, tropes, sub-genres, and how to best use each in order to meet your readers’ expectations. Exercises will include ‘beating out’ that romantic novel outline, and writing that all-important sex scene.

Finally, Helliwell will inform participants about the publishing process specific to the romance genre.
