Women’s fiction is one of the most popular genres on the planet. Authors like Sophie Kinsella, Marian Keyes, Helen Fielding and Liane Moriarty are bestsellers.
Because contemporary women’s fiction is about real, everyday women who, when faced with crises – romantic, professional, moral, family or several combined – can ultimately find strength within themselves and triumph over adversity. This broad genre’s tone, whether humorous or dramatic, is above all, compelling and authentic.
And that’s where you come in. If you have a story to tell, an idea that’s been floating around in your head, keeping you awake at night, we can help!
This course will teach you how to speak to your readers. Because although your finished product may be words on a page, the process is all about that “conversation” you share with the reader. It’s an intimate relationship: you want your reader to connect with your main character, cheer her on and be sympathetic (even when she chooses the wrong bloke or career).
Australian author Lisa Heidke knows all about this. She’s written five bestselling women’s fiction novels. That’s handy, because she’s your presenter.
Lisa will share her experiences, help you identify your voice, and show you how to bring your unique set of characters to life.
Everyone has a story to tell – it’s simply about making your story worth reading. If you love reading women’s fiction, you’re already halfway there!
