What is a “category romance” novel and what sets it apart from other romance novels? And why would anyone want to write one?
In this workshop, participants will learn about the ingredients necessary to craft an engaging, entertaining and effective category romance novel. These delicious, trope-and-hook heavy stories—which range from sweet to super sexy—follow established formulae that also allow room for plenty of author creativity, delivering readers the HEAs they want within the comforting framework of their favorite “category.”

We’ll learn how to identify a category romance, what goes into writing one, common mistakes to avoid, and try our hand at crafting a fantastic first page, an enticing first chapter, and discuss tips on breaking into the category romance market.

A weekly assignment will ensure that participants complete the workshop with not only a better understanding of category romances, but also ready to write one!

Very fun class and I learned a lot.
In the course Crafting the Category Romance, Michelle Karl gave tons of inside info not available on the web.She also critiqued a first page, then a first chapter. Course was far more than I ever expected. She was informative, encouraging, personal, and extremely helpful. I highly recommend her course and anything else she decides to teach. Thanks so much, Michelle!
I really enjoyed this class. Steve was incredibly helpful with his comments and really pointed out room for improvement.
Great information as always.
Great information and feedback, would recommend this class
This workshop was a wonderful overview of writing category romance. It covered everything explaining the different category requirements to an in-depth critique of your first chapter. I really enjoyed it and would highly recommend it.
Query Boot Camp with Meg LaTorre-Snyder was an excellent opportunity to get valuable industry insight. Chat forum was helpful and Meg was super friendly and accessible in answering our questions. Query critique was timely and helpful. I'd definitely recommend to anyone.
I'm a newbie writer and wasn't really sure where to begin with querying. This course was incredibly helpful. Meg was a fantastic instructor and I really appreciated the online chat Q&A's where she answered each and every question we had in explicit detail. The query critique was worth the cost of the class alone but the help I received throughout went above and beyond.
