New Voices Workshop(s)

Do you live anywhere near North Lincolnshire? 

That's where I'm doing my New Voices writing workshop this time around - at Ashby Library 
Ashby High Street
Scunthorpe
North Lincolnshire
DN16 2RY


I'll also have copies of my 12 Point Guide to Writing Romance for sale at this - and all events.

Numbers will be limited so Tel: 01724 296832 to enquire about bookings.



Or perhaps West Yorkshire is closer for you -
 I'm also doing a workshop at the Bronte Society Festival of Women's Writing on September 17th



Writing Romance with Kate Walker
10am-12pm, West Lane Baptist Centre
Romantic fiction writing is big business. This workshop, based on Kate Walker’s award winning
12 Point Guide to Writing Romance, is intended to provide information and advice for anyone
who wants to learn how to write in this popular genre. If you’re just starting out, or you’ve
written a manuscript or two but are not yet published and want to hone your skills, this
workshop is for you.
Tickets £15, includes refreshments.
Places are limited so early booking is recommended.

Also:
The Return of the Stranger:   Wuthering Heights meets Mills & Boon
2pm, The Old School room, Church Street
‘The Powerful and the Pure’ is a new series for Mills & Boon reworking
classics from romantic literature, including Pride and Prejudice and Jane
Eyre. Kate Walker discusses her newly published contribution to the
series, The Return of The Stranger, a reworking of her favourite novel,
Wuthering Heights.
Kate Walker wrote her first book for Mills & Boon, The Chalk Line, in 1984 and is currently working on her sixtieth title. A huge admirer of the Brontës, she wrote her MA thesis on the work of Charlotte and Emily Brontë and one of her most recent titles, Bedded by the Greek Billionaire, was loosely inspired by Wuthering Heights. She frequently lectures on romance writing.
Tickets £5 and should be booked in advance.
For all bookings and further  information contact the Brontë
Parsonage Museum: 01535 640188

And if you can't get to any workshops - do you have any questiosn that are worrying you? Nigggling at your mind so you can't settle to writing?

In the run up to the New Voices contest, I'll be running a romance writing Q&A  - so now's your chance to ask!


NB - I keep trying to post this up by the Ashby Library workshop but for some weird reason it keeps disappearing  so I'm adding it here:

I'll also have copies of my 12 Point Guide to Writing Romance for sale at this - and all events.
Numbers will be limited so telephone 01724 296832 to enquire about the Ashby Library workshop on August 31st
