June 2018 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, June 16th at the USM Campus in Lewiston, Maine

Kristan Higgins "The Elements of Dialogue"
In this intensive workshop, Kristan will discuss the elements of dialogue: the good, the bad, the ugly, the before, the after, the lines we never forget. With writing prompts and her own examples from the dreaded first draft, this class is a sure-fire hit with writers of all levels.

Kristan Higgins is the New York Times, USA TODAY, Wall Street Journal and Publishers Weekly bestselling author of 18 novels, which have been translated into more than twenty languages. Her books have received dozens of awards and accolades, including starred reviews from Kirkus, The New York Journal of Books, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and Booklist. She is a five-time nominee for The Kirkus Prize for Best Work of Fiction, and her books regularly appear on the lists for best novels of the year of many prestigious journals and review sites.
Kristan lives in Connecticut with her heroic firefighter husband, two children with extremely long eyelashes, two frisky rescue dogs and an occasionally friendly cat.
