HELENE YOUNG, CHRISTINE WELLS & BARBARA HANNAY Let’s face it, romance writing tends to be tarred with the same brush. Steamy love scenes set in the regency era with Lords and Ladies acting inappropriately for their station and so on. But, it’s not all sword fights and swooning ladies… Love Between the Pages wants to step away from the clichés of romance writing and emphasise the strong female role models and the diversity of genres within romance writing as a whole. 9.10am – 10.10am • USC Building B – Lecture Theatre
