ROMANTIC Way To Support Breast Cancer Research...



You may remember Nancy Warren, romance writer extraordinaire and presenter at our 2007 conference. Well, here's the latest on what she's been up to...and for those interested in a little professional development in the romance-writing department, this sounds like a GREAT way to spend the day!


Learn to Write Romance and Support Breast Cancer Research

Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 29, 2008. Award winning author Nancy Warren is giving a workshop on how to write romance. The course will run from 9:30 to 1:30 at the Vancouver Public Library, Main Branch, 350 West Georgia in the Peter Kaye room.

Suitable for all levels, from beginner to multi published, the workshop will cover the essentials of a love story, character development, plotting from the inside out, the heroine's journey, and marketing your work in today's publishing climate. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask your burning questions. But wait, there's more! The first five people who register will have the opportunity to have the first page of their romance work in progress critiqued by Nancy. This will be done during the workshop, but anonymously.

Proceeds from this course will be donated to the Canadian Breast Cancer

Cost for the four hour workshop, including door prizes and other goodies, is $40.
