Can Anyone Write a Romance Novel?

Anyone can write a romance novel. Or can they?

Amy Burge did a whole PhD on romance novels (yes, you can do that) and reckons there’s more to them than you think.

Come along and join Amy in this sixty-minute collaborative writing session and decide for yourself if romance novels deserve more esteem. Amy will introduce you to popular motifs and you’ll get a chance to suggest characters, costumes, settings and even the title!

Will you leave with a higher opinion of this seemingly frivolous genre?


Amy Burge, University of Edinburgh.
