WGS @ Work Series

March 26 @ 5:00 pm - 6:45 pm

March 26, 2024, 5:00 pm – 6:45 pm

Neville Hall Rm 208

Q and A with Cat Sebastian followed by romance-writing workshop



Do you enjoy reading romances? Could you envision writing a romance novel yourself? What does it take to find a literary agent and publish your work? Come prepared to ask questions, brainstorm ideas, and write!! Writing prompts (designed and facilitated by Cat Sebastian) will draw participants into the work—and pleasures!—of writing romance novels and other popular genres. Tea and hot chocolate will be served! While all UMaine community members are welcome, the workshop limited to 40 participants. Advance registration is required. Please email to reserve a spot. The first 18 undergraduates to reserve a spot will receive a free copy of Sebastian’s We Could Be So Good! (2023). 

 This event is sponsored by the Dr. Ann Margaret Johnstone Lecture Series, the WGS program and the Stephen E. King Chair in Literature. Dr. Ann Margaret Johnstone was the first tenure-track woman faculty member in the computer science program at the University of Maine. The Lecture Fund in Johnstone’s name was established by her friends and family in 1996, and as a gift for computer science (in odd years) and WGS (in even years). Johnstone was a poet and writer who had a love for Women’s Studies (as it was then called), and the lecture fund is intended to support women’s efforts across all disciplines in creative expression.
