It’s a Mystery! It’s a Thriller! No, it’s a ROMANCE!
Putting the Romance Arc Front and Center with HCRW’s Laverne St. George

Workshop Presentation from 1:30-3:00 Public Welcome
General admission: $10.00, FREE for HCRW members

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP: No matter whether you’re a plotter or a pantser, if you’re writing a genre romance, the romance arc is the main plotline. In this class, you’ll learn how the external plot and the romance arc relate and what purpose the “situation” plays. LaVerne St. George will share some techniques and resources she uses to identify the romance arc in her books, and how to place the arc in a three act structure.

INSTRUCTOR BIO: Award-winning author LaVerne St. George is known for her delightful sweet and inspirational romances and her believable characters. Her training as a librarian fuels her research, and she enjoys sharing her writing experience and love of romance with any audience that asks her. When not writing, LaVerne enjoys crocheting, crossword puzzles, vacation spots close to home, and romance novels with a touch of mystery.

INSTRUCTOR BIO:
After enjoying creative writing as a child, Lucy didn’t write her first novel until she was over 40 years old. Her debut novel, Borrowing Blue, was published in the autumn of 2016. Lucy has an English Literature degree from Vanderbilt University, but that doesn’t hold a candle to the years and years of staying up all night reading tantalizing novels on her own. She has three children, plays tennis, and hates folding laundry. While her husband is no shmoopy romance hero, he is very good at math, cooks a mean lasagne, has gorgeous eyes, looks hot in his business clothes, and makes her laugh every single day.
