CWWR 305 Beyond Writing Romance Novels

Course series
Communication & Design Program Area

Duration: 24 Hours
Fee: $486.02* (Payment in full is required at time of enrolment; HST Included.)

Writing commercial fiction for women doesn't mean writing a cliché romance novel. Thanks to novelists like Diana Gabaldon, Janet Evanovich, and Helen Fielding, modern romantic fiction has expanded to include chick lit, mystery, suspense, comedy, family sagas, and more. If you're interested in writing commercial fiction for women, this course will help you understand where you want to go within the genre and how to get there. Using building blocks of fiction (characterization, view point, dialogue, character arc, conflict, etc.), you'll learn how to develop a story that will grab an editor's attention and hold on until the happy ending. Beginning writers welcome.

Note: Instructor: Lynda Simmons
