#RomanceClass: The guidelines, an intro, a 2021 video lecture

August 19, 2021 - - No comments


It’s August 2021 and as of right now I know that we won’t be doing #RomanceClass anytime soon. But the guidelines “textbook” that I give to the class (that I use to write my own books still) is available, and I also did video versions of the lectures that can be viewed online.

Romance Class

Available at

Updated! 2018 edition, with revised and new lessons, and an accompanying audio lecture in MP3 format (24 mins).

A compilation of lessons from #romanceclass, a free class held in 2013, that has since helped over 80 Filipino authors write and publish over 100 romance novellas. Find the published books at

This book will help you:

1. Learn a simple plot structure for a romance novella

2. Set a reasonable and practical writing schedule

3. Finish the manuscript and prepare it for publication

Note: Best for self-paced learners who are familiar with romance plots and novels. Is not a grammar course. If you are entirely unfamiliar with romance/chick lit novels, best to read a few first before starting this.

This video is an introduction to the community, our books, how we make the books, how we help authors:

A more comprehensive video lecture about the community and how we write #RomanceClass books is available on Twitch, on-demand for subscribers. A subscription that unlocks all our videos and lectures costs P120 a month.

If you’ve watched/read these and still have questions, you can drop them here in the comments. But I recommend that you check all of this out first, and definitely read our books, to determine if this is for you!
