Once More With Feelings – February 1st-28th 2021

Emotion is at the centre of romantic stories, and being able to communicate emotion to readers and make them feel for your characters is a crucial skill for successful authors in the genre. And it’s hard. Sometimes really hard. This course will look at how to show a full range of emotion on the page. We’ll talk about imagery, avoiding cliché, making the emotion feel real and then we’ll delve into creating engrossing emotional conflicts, heart-rending darkest moments and truly satisfying resolutions, so your characters and your story stay with your reader long after they’ve finished reading. If you want to make your readers laugh, cry, and fall in love with your characters so they keep turning the pages right to the end of your novel this course is for you.

This course will run online as part of the RWA Academy, and booking is through the RWA. Book here.
