Workshop Info

Woman’s World magazine pays $800 for each 800 word romance story, but it's a very difficult market to break into. I've developed three workshops for writers who want to find out how. Each class is $20. Use the buttons below for Paypal or to pay by credit card. 

Important Notes

I am not officially affiliated with Woman's World magazine nor are my classes sanctioned by them. The classes are a collection of helpful advice, strategies and tips for writers who want to sell romance to them. 

I usually send the packets via email within 24 hours of receipt of payment. However, life happens--family emergency, the Internet goes down, email doesn't get delivered, etc.--so I may not always send the stuff "instantaneously." Thanks for your understanding.

Several writers who have taken this class have gone on to sell to the magazine. (See the Testimonials.)

Beyond the Basics I

In this first advanced class, I examine five story elements that occur over and over in Woman’s World romantic fiction. These story elements enhance submissions and give them that certain something unique to the publication. 

  • Romance
  • Great Beginnings
  • "Non-Cliches"
  • Heroism
  • Likeability

I also deconstruct three of the most popular plots and guide you through the plotting process so that by the end of the class, you’ll be set with numerous plots and ideas, all ready to go. 

  • First Meet
  • Man-to-the-Rescue
  • Troubled Spouse

There are assignments designed to help pinpoint strengths and weaknesses in the stories you have been submitting and stories they have yet to write. The assignments are not graded or evaluated by me.
