Love is in the manuscript this Valentine’s season! Whether you’re writing a MG crush, a romantic subplot or a full-on genre YA romance, join us for some practical advice, a look at some common tropes (aka frequently appearing situations or plots in romance manuscripts) and a discussion on the general direction of market trends. Don’t forget to bring your questions for a time of Q & A at the end of the evening.
*Registration for the webinar closes 5am the morning of the event.
