This is an online talk offered via Zoom Webinar. Please register here: Writing Romance
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.
