Chapter One Workshop

Open discussion: Christine Schimpf will lead an informal exchange between authors about the kinds of problems we all share from Time Management to POV. This is also a time when we can share our best moments and what we enjoy the most about the writing journey.

Roundtable Discussion: Bring in Chapter One or a 1500 word scene from your WIP for general feedback and encouragement from the group. This is the safest and most supportive environment for writers to find out what we are doing that's great and what we might be missing on the page.

Love Between the covers teaser Film synopsis:

Love stories are universal. Love stories are powerful. And so are the women who write them. For three years, the filmmakers followed the lives of five published romance authors and one unpublished newbie as they build their businesses, find and lose loved ones, cope with a tsunami of change in publishing, and earn a living doing what they love—while empowering others to do the same. Romance is the behemoth of the publishing industry; it outsells mystery, sci-fi, and fantasy combined. Yet no filmmaker has ever taken an honest look at the amazing global community that romance writers and readers have built. Until now.
