Putting the Romance Arc Front and Center with HCRW’s Laverne St. George

Workshop Presentation from 1:30-3:00 Public Welcome

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.
