Maybe you’re still feeling a teensy bit sorry for yourself because you couldn’t go to the Romance Writers of America® Nationals in D.C. last month. It’s true, you missed out on the chance to pitch to that superagent you’d love to have take on your trilogy, or get your photo snapped with Nora.
Why weep? Alright, not weep, but grouse? Step back in time and head to Nationals via RWA online.
Normally, I don’t get that excited about rwanational.org. As websites go, it’s not all that sexy. Definitely worth a visit, however, is the Conference Recordings & Handouts page.
At last count, some blessed soul within RWA had collected and posted PDF copies of the handouts provided to audience members for over 75 workshops at Nationals. While not as fun as attending the workshops themselves, many of the handouts are virtually complete outlines of the talks given by the pros, packed with useful information.
Among my personal favorites are: High Octane Kisses: Writing Action with Heart; Paranormals: Writing Outside the Box; and It’s Not the Hottest Genre, so How Do Debut historical Romance Authors Get Six Figure Deals?
The best thing about each and every handout? They’re FREE! To anyone!
