Purpose of NLW

To advance the professional interests of career-focused writers through networking, information, and education, and to provide continuing support for writers within the romance  publishing industry.
Lunch at the Midwestern Book Lovers Unite Conference 2015

There are so many aspects to the writing process. From perfecting the craft of writing a good story to the business of getting it published. Then there are all the marketing issues to work out. Learn through a friendly environment. 

This year our three-part craft series deals with beginnings, middles, and endings. A book’s beginning needs to catch the reader’s attention, the middle needs to keep them turning the pages, and the end needs to make them sigh with satisfaction. 
Craft Part 1: Great Beginnings: How to capture the reader's interest quickly. What is the dynamic? This interactive discussion explores good opening sentences, opening paragraphs, and opening chapters.
