The Layered Heroine

Just as women have evolved over the decades, so have the romance heroines with whom they identify.
No longer content to be rescued or domesticated, the modern romance heroine is made up of
many different layers. In this class, attendees will explore techniques that
incorporate backstory, internal and external conflict, speech, physical attributes,
age and outside influences, to build a multifaceted woman ready to
embark on her own journey and find happily ever after on her terms.
