June 2016 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 June 18th, 2016

Guest Speaker:

Anna E. Jordan
"Pounding Hearts and Puppy Love"

According to Gillian Engberg, Editorial Director of Books for Youth from 2011 to 2014, 71 percent of the 58.1 million American romance readers opened their first adult romance novel when they were sixteen. In “Pounding Hearts and Puppy Love,” we’ll take a quick tour of where Young Adult romance has been, and where it is now. We’ll look at specific examples of sex and kissing on the page and talk about the use of sex to reveal character and emotional arc. Finally, we’ll use word lists as a method of creating great sex and make-out scenes that respect teen readers and their development. 

Anna E. Jordan is a children’s book writer, poet, and illustrator whose Young Adult manuscript Control. Crush. won the PEN New England Susan P. Bloom children’s book discovery award. Anna has an MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts and a MSEd from the University of Southern Maine. Anna is an active member of the online children’s book or #kidlit community. She is the author of the blog “Creative Chaos” (Est. 2006) currently.
