The Plot Thickens: Crafting a Compelling Romance (with Paula Altenburg)

Apr 26 – May 31, 7 – 9pm >>

In this five-week workshop, we’ll explore the romance genre and the tools required to finish a viable story. There will be an introduction to basic writing tools and techniques you’ll need to get started, as well as an overview on the three-act structure. A bibliography of the resources used by the instructor will be included.


USA Today Bestselling Author Paula Altenburg grew up in rural Nova Scotia knowing that at some point in her life she was likely to be a fiction writer. Swapping Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey books with her father guaranteed she wasn’t going to be the next Jane Austen, much to the dismay of her English teacher mother. A graduate of the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia, she writes contemporary romance and fantasy with romantic elements.
