I don't often report on events like this, but this one is so
benefit- and content-driven for writers that every kind of romance novelist could learn something valuable or boost their career because of it.

Harlequin is hosting a 5-day online event next week (November 1-5) with more than 50 professional editors and authors called So You Think You Can Write?

Here's just a brief list of benefits and opportunities:

  • Live chats and webinars with Harlequin editors
  • Community discussions with USA Today bestselling authors
  • Daily challenges to test writing skills
  • A special inbox for writers to submit their manuscripts directly to Harlequin editors

Each weekday offers new, educational opportunities from 9 to 5, on topics such as:

  • Succeeding as a Romance Writer
  • First Chapters
  • What Editors Look For
  • Paranormal Plots
  • The End of Predictability in Romance Writing

If you're interested in writing and publishing romance, this is a must-see and must-participate event.
