Seattle Writes: Romance Sub-Plots For Genre Fiction

  • Seattle Public Library, Green Lake Branch 7364 East Green Lake Drive North Seattle, WA, 98115 United States (map)

Learn how romantic attraction between characters can be used to add dimension to conflict and raise the stakes in the plot while avoiding the common pitfalls that elicit reader groans (and not the good kind). Come prepared to troubleshoot your work with short writing exercises designed to help round out characters and deepen their interactions.
