A well-crafted romantic sub-plot can add dimension to any genre. A love interest can raise the stakes in a thriller, round out the character of a fantasy trilogy hero/heroine, or serve as the ultimate blind spot for an antihero. With that in mind, it’s worth it to master the romantic arc. In this workshop, we’ll work through the mandatory beats in romance (meet cute, courtship, darkest hour, ending) and learn to nail each one. We’ll focus on avoiding clichés, showing chemistry, and building intimacy. Finally, we’ll work on expressing emotion in subtle, plausible ways.
