roni’s online WRITING CLASSES
Currently Enrolling (space limited):
HOW TO WRITE LOVE SCENES THAT READERS WON’T SKIP
CLASS BEGINS AUGUST 3, 2019. Reserve your spot now! (seats are limited)
Whether you're writing sweet, sexy, or melt-the-pages romance, no one wants to write love scenes that have readers skimming the pages. Join New York Times bestselling author and two-time Rita award winner Roni Loren in an in-depth workshop on writing great love scenes. Learn how to write different types of love scenes, how to make them memorable and not cringe-worthy, and how to tailor them to your genre or subgenre. You'll also dig into the components of a great love scene (spoiler: it has very little to do with choreography.) And finally, you'll learn how to get past any my-mom/dad-might-read-this qualms. It can be done!
Note: This is a workshop for 18+ age group.
What We’ll Cover

How to get over my-mother-may-read-this fear

LIVE VIDEO PRESENTATION - Roni will open the class with a live video and slide presentation (roughly 1.5-2 hours.) This is the full workshop she presents at writing conferences across the country. (The live video call will be via the Zoom app/website. Students will not be on camera or audio, but will be able to use the chat box for questions. The video will be recorded and posted within the class if you can't make it during the live time.)
PRINTABLE LECTURES - The information covered in the lecture will also be broken down and provided in printed lectures that you can download and keep. This will give you the opportunity to go over the information in more detail and at your own pace.
OPTIONAL ASSIGNMENTS - Within the lectures, there will be optional assignments to help you work on the skills discussed.
LIVE Q+A - Questions can be submitted to Roni throughout the class. At the end of the class session, Roni will do a live Q+A to answer your questions.
CLASS DISCUSSION - Within the class, you will have the opportunity to chat with the instructor, your fellow writers, potentially find beta readers/critique partners, and learn from each other.
