  1. Behind the Scenes: The Research Before the Book Presenter: Jacqui Jacoby Class begins: May 2, 2022 Class Length: Four Weeks Cost: $30 (free for Romance Writers Online members) Link to registration: https://rwaonlinechapter.org/workshops-3/ Last day to register is May 2, 2022 Class Blurb: Before the book, before a writer types a word on a page, there is an idea. And behind that idea are the characters, the background, the location. Research is an important aspect of any story. Whether the writer prepares their background information before they begin to write the story, or if they make it up as they go, they will need to get to know the people they are creating. Behind the Scenes: The Research Before the Book is a class which will help writers learn the basics for researching their novels. Whether they are using the public library, stacking their own shelves or meeting with a professional in their character's profession, this class will give the writer the insiders look at how to do the research and then pull it all together. Presenter Bio: Award-winning author, Jacqui Jacoby lives and writes in the beauty of Northern Arizona. Currently adjusting to being an empty nester with her first grandchild to draw her pictures, Jacqui is a self-defense hobbyist. Having studied martial arts for numerous years she retired in 2006 from the sport, yet still brings strength she learned from the discipline to her heroines.

  5. Mastering Character Arcs Presenter: Peter Andrews Class begins: April 4, 2022 Class Length: Four weeks Cost: $30 (free for Romance Writers Online members) Link to workshop registrations: https://rwaonlinechapter.org/workshops-3/ Last day to register is April 4, 2022 About the workshop: One reason we come to fiction is to experience the changes characters go through. And, while the external journey from maid to princess or farmer to Jedi knight may create engaging challenges, we identify with characters because they learn how to trust others or master their tempers or become their true selves. They go on journeys where they learn who they are and how they fit in. They overcome their flaws, form connections, grow up and heal. The internal change is shaped and forced by their external tasks, giving them arcs that delight readers. This class will help participants to honestly assess the flaws in characters they love. They'll look to how hard choices avoided make things worse and how choices faced with courage bring growth, understanding... and credible happy endings. Course syllabus: Lesson 1 What’s wrong with my hero? Lesson 2 Go big or go home Lesson 3 The role of external challenges, escalation Lesson 4 Caring about the internal struggle Worrying about characters Lesson 5 Meeting the unexpected (and stumbling) No smooth roads Lesson 6 The consequences of failure Lesson 7 Help along the way, reflections Lesson 8 Reasons to change/not to change. Lesson 9 Pushed to the limits (McKee) Lesson 10 The right ending for an arc 10 Lessons/4 weeks Presenter Bio: Peter Andrews is a full-time, independent writer of speeches, articles, and blogs. He has dozens of short stories and hundreds of nonfiction articles in print. He has worked professionally in PR and as a Web producer, speechwriter, and radio producer. He teaches writing for the Hudson Valley Writers’ Center, Westchester Community College, the Westchester Center for the Arts, and various online venues.

  6. 50 Rude Questions to Get to Know Your Characters Presenter: Peter Andrews Class begins: February 1, 2022 Class Length: Four weeks Cost: $15 (free for RWA® Online Chapter members) Link to registration: http://rwaonlinechapter.org/ Last day to register is February 1, 2022 About the workshop: Which would you choose? A picture of your protagonist? Or her story about burying her dog in the neighbor’s yard at midnight? Which would tell you more about her? Probably the latter. Deep secrets. Painful memories. Private joys. Embarrassments. Regrets. Anonymous works of charity. These can reveal characters more than their resumes, driver’s licenses, or physical descriptions. It’s great to have all of the above, but a story, free of cliche, emerges most easily from the answers to interviews. Even if the characters lie. This course is designed to help you learn what is deep, unexpected, and critical to how characters see themselves and how they fit in. And once you know those characters inside and out, their distinct and specific choices will be authentic and compelling. Your characters will have a greater chance of coming alive and telling you their stories. Course syllabus: Lesson 1 How to interview your characters Lesson 2 The questions that tell you the most Lesson 3 If you can catch your characters lying, you win Lesson 4 Interviews under different situations - Drunkenness, bribery, trickery and torture Lesson 5 Putting the answers to use Lesson 6 Magnifying flaws - It’s not the character, it’s you Lesson 7 Getting better answers from the antagonists Lesson 8 Making characters you know work together or betray each other Lesson 9 Summary and application to your story Presenter Bio: Peter Andrews is a full-time, independent writer of speeches, articles, and blogs. He has dozens of short stories and hundreds of nonfiction articles in print. He has worked professionally in PR and as a Web producer, speechwriter, and radio producer.

While "Four score and seven years ago" might have worked fine for Old Abe, starting a book/story with flashback or lengthy description has fallen out of favor with the generation raised on MTV. "Hook 'Em" will dissect the good, the bad and the ugly of openers, why they work and why they don't. It will examine different categories and styles of opening lines and scenes and help students analyze their own writing. ***** Those Who Forget the Past: Using Backstory to Enhance Your Novel Presenter: Cynthia Owens Class begins: September 5, 2022 Class Length: Four Weeks Description: In Those Who Forget History: Using Backstory to Enhance Your Novel, students will examine how to use backstory effectively to enhance their stories using elements of a character’s past. We will cover: • What is Backstory? • Flashbacks and How to Use Them, • The Five Ws of Backstory—Who, What, Where, When and Why—of a character’s past. • Prologues—how to use a prologue to provide backstory. • Dialogue—how to manipulate your readers by using a character’s dialogue to hint at backstory. • Weaving—how to weave backstory into your story. • Inner Thought—revealing your character’s backstory through inner thought. • What Do They Want?—how your character’s backstory can affect his goals. Included in the workshop is a workbook with assignments, checklists, and more. ***** A Fiction Writer’s Secret Weapon: Show, Don’t Tell Presenter: Leslie J. Hall Class begins: October 3, 2022 Class Length: Three Weeks Description: Show, Don’t Tell. What does it really mean? How can we use it in stories? We’ll review the true meaning and how it connects to point of view, setting, and description. We’ll discuss how this tool helps connect reader to our stories, what ‘tell’ looks like, and how to change it to ‘show.’ We’ll review the before and after examples from books and music, and from attendee in class exercises. Great workshop for any level of writer who wants their stories to be powerful. Most writers have heard Show, Don’t Tell. What is it and how do we use it in stories? We’ll review the meaning of the phrase and how it connects with readers. Class covers writing in the active voice, how the tool assists with character development, how the tool helps us create engaging and visual settings, and how the tool and point of view are interconnected. Examples from books and songs will be used. ***** Outstanding Openings Presenter: Tina Tocco Class begins: December 5, 2022 Class Length: Three weeks Description: Opening paragraphs can be one of the most important — and most challenging — parts of any story. Even if writers have the perfect details swimming in their brains, what’s the best way to kickstart those first lines (and keep readers reading)? Action? Dialogue? A question? In this 2-week workshop, we’ll examine a variety of story openings and discuss their strengths and weaknesses. Then, you’ll revise your opening paragraphs multiple times, exploring what works best for your work in progress. You’ll post your assignments during both weeks, giving and receiving feedback, and are encouraged to share your writing process. By the end of this workshop, you’ll have at least two distinctly new versions of your original story opening, plus a greater understanding of how different styles for different projects can benefit your writing.

  9. RWA Online Chapter #136 will hold a Zoom Workshop October 16, 2021 @ 2:00 PM EST After THE END: Epilogues, Query Letters, Synopses, and More! Presented by Terri Brisbin Date: Saturday October 16, 2021, via Zoom Time: 2:00 PM EST/1:00 PM CST/Noon MST/11:00 AM PST Duration: 90 minutes Cost: Free for RWAOL (RWA Online Chapter #136) members. $15 for non-members. Public is welcome. Link to registration: https://rwaonlinechapter.org/workshops-3/oct-18-after-the-end/ The workshop will be recorded. You must register before the workshop begins but the recording will be available to registrants soon after the workshop ends. While the workshop is mostly geared to those who are seeking traditional publishers, it will be a useful tool for any writer, including those self-published or still seeking publication. About the Workshop Most writers think that when they type the wondrous words – THE END – their work is done. In reality, it is just beginning! One decision is about whether to include an epilogue in your fiction. But, two of the most important parts of your work – the Query Letter and the Synopsis—still need to be created if you expect to market and/or publish your work. Both are critical tools that will grab the attention of a prospective editor or agent and help them sell your work to publishers. Terri, who has sold her work based on synopses, will discuss the final steps of fiction writing – crafting an epilogue, writing a query letter and composing a thorough synopsis – and give tips and share suggestions from leading editors and agents about those crucial final steps of novel writing. (For experienced writers nearing THE END or anyone who has a goal of being published by a traditional publisher) About the presenter In her previous lives, USA TODAY bestselling author Terri Brisbin has lived in ancient Egypt and medieval Scotland, but here and now she’s stuck in the wilds of southern New Jersey with one hubby, three sons (and three daughters-in-law), and FOUR grandbabies! When not living the life of a glamorous romance author or writing her way through deadline-binges-o-mania, she also continues in her practice as a dental hygienist. Since 1998, Terri’s more than 46 historical and paranormal romance novels, novellas and short stories have been published by Berkley, Harlequin, Kensington, NAL and SMP Swerve and released in 20 languages in 25 countries! Terri has also self-published some works and is working on more stories to be released in the future! You can connect with Terri on her website at www.terribrisbin.com *** This will be a Zoom videoconference workshop. Those who are RWA Online Chapter #136 members do not have to pay, and our members will be provided a link to register for free. Others will need to register and pay the $15 participation fee.

  10. FREEDOM AND FRAMEWORK: STORY PLANNING FOR PANTSERS Presenter: Catherine Chant Class begins: October 4, 2021 Class Length: Three weeks Cost: $15 (free for RWA® Online Chapter members) Registration is open Link to registration: https://rwaonlinechapter.org/workshops-3/oct-2020-storyplanning/ About the workshop: Flying by the seat of your pants to write the first draft for your book feels so freeing. It’s a time to play, to experiment, to try out new ideas. What fun! But diving into a project as big as a novel without any plan at all often means a lot of extra work after the draft is completed as you scramble to revise hundreds of pages that might have no cohesion, inconsistent characters, or a wandering plot. One way to lessen that extra work is to go into the rough draft phase of your book with a better idea of where the story’s headed. That doesn’t mean knowing everything about your story (how boring would that be?), but it does mean knowing something to give your story direction. “Outline” is a scary word for most pantsers. It sounds restrictive, it sounds tedious, it sounds boring. So, there will be no “outlines” here. Nope. None. Instead, you’re going to build yourself a “framework” for your story that’s open and flexible, with plenty of room for playing, experimenting, and checking out new ideas off the beaten path whenever the inspiration strikes you. Story Planning for Pantsers: Keep your freedom, but keep on track, too. Presenter Bio: Catherine Chant is an active member of the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and a Golden Heart® finalist. She is the author of a young adult rock 'n' roll time travel series, available now at your favorite book retailer. She loves helping other writers and teaches several online workshops throughout the year. You can learn more at http://www.CatherineChant.com.

She’ll also discuss the pros and cons of using archetypes, astrology and tarot to build story people. Presenter Bio: Winner of the prestigious national book award, the RITA®, science fiction romance author Linnea Sinclair is a name synonymous with high-action, emotionally intense, character-driven novels.

  13. RWA Online, Chapter #136 of Romance Writers of America is now accepting online workshop proposals for 2022. We are looking for experienced workshop presenters who have a passion for teaching the craft, the business of writing, a writer’s life, or publishing. You do not need to be a member of RWA to teach the workshop. Workshops may be 2-4 weeks in length and we are actively seeking presenters who can create interactive, student-centered learning opportunities that may include homework and feedback, question and answer sessions, and a stimulating discussion environment. RWAOL offers at least six or more online workshop sessions each year on various topics of interest to both the published and unpublished writer. Our workshops are held via a discussion board (forum) format on our website (www.rwaonlinechapter.org/Boards). (IMPORTANT: We do not hold any workshops via email loops, such as Google Groups or on Facebook.) RWAOL provides all workshops free of charge to its members and charges $15 for non-chapter members. We offer workshop presenters a flat-rate fee of $200 for two weeks, $300 for three weeks and $400 for four weeks or a full month for their services. We expect our presenters to be professional, prepared, available, and computer-savvy enough to present using a forums/discussion board format. Since some of our presenters have not used a forum format, we have a private forum for the presenter to test things and get help from us before the workshop starts or during the workshop. Our forum format also facilitates discussion, enables our presenters to include pictures/photographs and videos as well as links to articles on the internet in the text of their lessons. Our format allows presenters and students to access our forum 24/7. All workshop proposals should include a title, a blurb about the course, course syllabus, and a brief resume/bio of the instructor. Please include how many times the workshop was/are being taught in 2021 and when and where you are planning to teach it in 2022. RWAOL requests an exclusivity clause so that any negotiated workshop is not presented via another venue within 2 months of RWAOL's scheduled date. Note: If 2022 does not work and you are interested in teaching a class in 2023, let me know. Our members have expressed interest in workshops on editing, fast paced writing, and self-publishing, the business of writing as a career, plus any other targeted writing areas that would help them pursue their craft in romance, as long as it can be taught in a two to four-week period. The usual way classes are taught is to post lessons three days a week over the course period and to allow for time for questions to be asked and answered. We are looking for most any type of workshop that relates to romance writing. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. This is a great opportunity to earn some money and give back to fellow writers in teaching them the craft. Please send your workshop proposals (or your questions) to Patti Fischer at fisc40pa@aol.com Thank you. Patti Fischer Workshop Coordinator RWA Online Chapter http://www.rwaonlinechapter.org/
