This workshop will explore the craft of romance writing to help create believable, swoony, satisfying romance novels. Farah will cover the requirements of the genre and a discussion of all the subgenres, before diving into plot structure, setting, dialogue, scenes, and nailing the emotions to hook readers. She will also cover how to add romantic subplots to books of any genre.

After a childhood raised on Bollywood, Monty Python, and Jane Austen, Farah Heron wove complicated story arcs and uplifting happily ever afters in her daydreams while pursuing careers in human resources and psychology. She started writing those stories down a few years ago, and never looked back. Farah’s debut, The Chai Factor was named one of the summer’s best books by The Globe and Mail, and was praised in Book Riot, Smart Bitches Trashy Books, Bustle and more. Her next release, Accidentally Engaged, was praised in Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, NPR, The Toronto Star, Glamour magazine, and Oprah magazine. Her young adult debut, Tahira in Bloom, will be out November 2, 2021.
