Weekly Lecture Schedule for February 13-17, 2012
RU’s Jennifer Tanner lines up a fabulous group of Visiting Professors this week, plus a fun Valentine’s Day contest!
Mon, 2/13 – Do certain characters stay with you long after you’ve finished a book? Author Donna MacMeans visits the RU campus and gives us tips on how to create likeable and memorable characters. http://www.donnamacmeans.com
Tues, 2/14 – HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Whether it’s a bouquet of well-intentioned, half-dead flowers from the corner liquor store, the stale box of drugstore candy with someone else’s name on it, or the Valentine that never came, everyone’s got a love-gone-wrong story. We want your absolute worst. The most wretched, overwrought and bruise-worthy purple prose you can possibly fit into one sentence containing no more than seventy words. All the details are at http://romanceuniversity.org/2012/02/11/tainted-love-contest/
Wed, 2/15 – You only have a few sentences to introduce your main character and entice readers to come on a journey with her. Author Anne R. Allen provides tips on how to make the most of those sentences. http://www.annerallen.blogspot.com
Fri, 2/17 – Monthly columnist Theresa Stevens returns with her popular Ask An Editor blog. http://edittorrent.blogspot.com/
All Romance University lectures are generously provided by our Visiting Professors. RU is a tuition-free zone!
All our best,
Tracey Devlyn, Jennifer Tanner, Becke Martin-Davis, Kelsey Browning, Adrienne Giordano, Robin Covington, and Carrie Spencer
