Fall Workshop In Calgary - Rebecca York and Allison Lyons

Whether you're a writer looking for a great, informative weekend of workshops and pitches, or a fan of Rebecca's, this might get your attention! The weekend begins with a booksigning with our "headliner" Rebecca York, but also including CaRWA authors such as Vivi Anna, me, and Pamela Yaye. I can personally guarantee this is a great time...so much so that when we moved I pledged to fly back for it. Read on....


For its annual fall workshop, The Calgary Association of the Romance Writers of America (CaRWA) is thrilled to host REBECCA YORK, bestselling and award-winning author of 115 novels of romantic suspense and paranormal fiction.

“We are extremely fortunate to have someone of Rebecca’s calibre coming to town,” said Tawny Stokes, president of CaRWA. “She’s won praise from the big names in the romance field, people like Nora Roberts and Jayne Ann Krentz.”

“Rebecca’s also known in the industry for her generosity of mind. Every writer of commercial fiction is guaranteed to benefit from her wisdom.”

The CaRWA workshop is on October 18, 2008 from 10 am to 3:30 pm at the Greenwood Inn NE, Calgary. REBECCA YORK will run two workshops: TENSION: Keeping Them on the Edge of their Seats and THE MARRIAGE OF PLOT AND CHARACTER: You can’t have One without the Other.

Also attending will be ALLISON LYONS, senior editor with the New York Harlequin office. Ready to shop for all NY Harlequin lines, she will take pitching appointments immediately following the workshop with any interested workshop registrant.

As part of workshop events, there’s a booksigning at Sunridge Chapters on Friday, October 17, 2008 from 4 – 6 pm. CaRWA authors and Rebecca York will be there to meet the public. “We did this last year with Brenda Novak, NY Times bestselling author,” said Tawny Stokes. “It was terrific fun, and a great way to meet readers and writers.”

The workshop is priced at $75 CaRWA members / $85 non-members. To register, go to http://www.calgaryrwa.com/ and follow the links.
