September Meeting

Maine Romance Writers is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting romance and other fiction writers via networking and programming. Through monthly meetings and workshops, we strive to provide continuing assistance in the journey to publication, whether by a traditional path, a small press, or independent publishing.

Our next meeting is Saturday, September 23rd
**Due to scheduling conflicts, we moved the meeting to the fourth Saturday**

Gina Ardito
“Laugh and the World Laughs With You

 No matter what genre you write, well-placed humor can break tension, add a light-hearted moment to a dark scene, or simply distract your reader with a red-herring. Using examples from films, books, and even songs, this workshop will teach you the ten basic aspects of writing comedy and help you to discover the "funny bone" inside you.

Gina Ardito is the award-winning author of more than twenty romances in contemporary, historical, and paranormal sub-genres. She’s currently published by Montlake, The Wild Rose Press, and recently signed with Harlequin Heartwarming. In 2012, she was named A Woman of Outstanding Leadership in Publishing by the IWLA (International Women’s Leadership Association). That same year, she launched her freelance editing business, Excellence in Editing, and now has a stable of award-winning clients, as well.
