Ever wanted to capture the essence of dance into your scenes? Come and experience this amazing session at this year’s conference.
In this DANCE AS AN EXPRESSION OF LOVE workshop, come and explore how the medium of dance can add impact to your writing, stories and characters.
Presented by Diane Demetre, this workshop will have live dancers, Pauline Thompson and Ian Watt (National and State Ballroom Champions), illustrate the triggers of love, show you how to escalate attraction, highlight the importance of breathing, and how you can turn up the heat with touch. The dancers will demonstrate the synchronicity needed to dance, and love, as one. This workshop will deliver a rare glimpse into one of storytelling’s oldest forms of communication…the dance.

Another exciting session announcement for this year’s conference.
Simply Synopsis: A stress-free method for synopsis creation.
Most authors would rather compose an 80k+ word novel than summarise their story into 2-5 pages. Why? Because they’ve never learned an effective yet easy process for crafting a synopsis.
In the Simply Synopsis workshop, Michelle Somers will teach you a step-by-step strategy to pare a story down before building it back up, paragraph-by-paragraph, into synopsis form. The process is simple, systematic and straightforward, and is a fail-proof way to ensure all the vital elements that make a great story are present in the final product.
Michelle Somers is an award-winning romantic suspense author. She’s a professional killer and matchmaker, a storyteller and a romantic. Words are her power and her passion. Her heroes and heroines always get their happy ever after, but she’ll put them through one hell of a journey to get there.

Another exciting Love Gone Wild conference announcement.
So are you ready to duel? Duelling in the ages of romance was a hit last year in Adelaide and we are lucky enough to bring them again to this year’s conference.
Get to know the differences between a Longsword and a Side-sword, or the Rapier and the Sabre. When violence in your story is necessary, come and find out what your best options are.
Shay McAulay, founder of the Brisbane Duellist Society, and Nic Harrison will have you step back in time and demonstrate historical combat.
This interactive session is not to be missed.

Registrations for the 26th Annual RWA Conference will open at the end of the month (fingers-crossed), so in the meantime, we thought we’d give you a few teasers about what’s coming your way.
Our first major announcement…
We have been across the globe in search of something truly unique to present at the Love Gone Wild conference and we are excited to launch RWA’s very first Business Hub. The Business Hub will be restricted to authors (emerging and established) with published novels (self or traditional). The sessions will focus on marketing and expanding your reach across the globe.
To get you excited, let us drop the names who are coming to Love Gone Wild. (And there will be more surprises revealed at conference, but we can’t publish their name!)
Google | Draft2Digital | Bolinda | Neilson BookScan.
You can look forward to learning how to use Google Adwords and analytics effectively, self-publish and market globally with Draft2Digital, expand your reach with Bolinda, and gain industry knowledge and understand your sales data with Neilson-Bookscan (sales territories permitting).
