Join Writer in Residence Stefanie London and Harlequin editor Dana Grimaldi, for a look at how the romance genre has changed in the wake of #MeToo. This discussion will cover power dynamics, consent, modernizing classic romance tropes and understanding how these issues affect all aspects of a romance story, not just the love scenes. Get insight into what romance editors look for when assessing manuscript submissions and how they work with authors to make sexy and compelling stories that portray healthy, balanced relationships.
