Education & Community

We gather speakers from all facets of the romance writing community for presentations on everything from plotting, conflict building, character development, publishing, contracts, social media and marketing, goal setting, and so much more!

If you want to connect to other romance authors, hone your skills as a writer, or learn more about what’s happening in this ever-changing genre, we would love for you to join us!
