Romantic Novelists' Association

Hints & Tips For New Writers #16

15 May 2019

Last weekend I went to the Author North: Writing Romantic Fiction event in Leeds (#SoAWritingRomance), which got me out of my writing cave, gave me the chance to catch up/moan/laugh with writer friends and btw provided an excellent lunch! And because there was also some really great advice, here are the massively paraphrased best hints & tips from the day…

Defying Conventions: How to juggle different sub-genres within Romance Fiction with Jane Lovering (who has asked to be portrayed as wise) and Kate Johnson (also wise)

Industry Insights: Publishing Romantic Fiction Today with Kate Nash, Phoebe Morgan & Sareeta Domingo

Love is for Everyone: Diversity & Representation in Romance with Rhoda Baxter, Liam Livings, Sareeta Domingo and Alison May

Historical Romance with Val Wood, interviewed by Nick Quantrill

The event was run by the Society of Authors (the UK trade union for authors since 1884) in collaboration with the Romantic Novelists Association.
