Love is in the Air

Hot off the press from the Romance Writers of New Zealand publicity officer:


Now is the time to get serious about that novel you’ve been writing.

Romance Writers of New Zealand’s annual conference ‘Love is in the Air’ and series of writers’ workshops will be held at Auckland’s Crowne Plaza Hotel from Friday, August 24 to Sunday, August 26.

Speakers include Randy Ingermanson, commonly known as “The Snowflake Guy”, New York Times-bestselling author Eloisa James, USA literary agent Nephele Tempest from The Knight Agency and Joanne Grant, editor from Harlequin Mills and Boon in London.

No conference would be complete without evening entertainment and this year there’s a themed Edge of Darkness Cocktail Party on Friday evening, and a Sparkling Ice and Snow Awards Dinner on Saturday night echoing Randy Ingermanson’s snowflake theme.

Writers take note, the following editors and agents are attending the conference and will be taking pitches during the weekend but you must register soon as pitch bookings are essential.
