Workshop Description

\n

Wri ters 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 writt en\, edited\, published\, and consumed by women\, which means that women p ower a multi-billion dollar industry. Moreover\, romance novels offer stor ies centered on women who\, despite conflict and adversity\, actually achi eve 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 idea ls 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\, interact ive workshop about the sometimes conflictual\, frequently steamy\, and eve r-hopeful relationship between feminism and romance fiction.
