March 9, 2019 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm for

Feminism & Romance with Katharine Ashe

Writers and fans of romance fiction are the first to declare that romance is a feminist genre. And it’s absolutely true. Genre romance is largely written, edited, published, and consumed by women, which means that women power a multi-billion dollar industry. Moreover, romance novels offer stories centered on women who, despite conflict and adversity, actually achieve their dreams. But if there’s one thing a romance heroine never does, it’s rest on her laurels. How can writers of romance today ensure that the industry we comprise and the fiction we write reflects our cherished ideals of gender equality while holding onto the things we’ve long loved most about romance novels? Bring an open mind and your WIP for a fun, interactive workshop about the sometimes conflictual, frequently steamy, and ever-hopeful relationship between feminism and romance fiction.

 


You are invited! Join us from 11:30 am -12:30 pm for the pre-meeting lunch at:
Golden Corral
6129 Glenwood Ave
Raleigh, NC
The post-meeting coffee is announced after the meeting.
