ROSA Webinars

As part of the mentorship phase for the 2020 Strelitzia Contest, we offered a series of webinars, which were also available to non-entrants. Recordings of these webinars are available to purchase for R100 each. If you wish to buy a recording, please email


The topics covered so far are:

  • All About Romance - an introduction to writing Romance by Suzanne Jefferies

  • Getting to gips with inner conflict by Suzanne Jefferies

  • Showing vs Telling by Romy Sommer

  • Writing Tight - self-editing tips by Sharonlee Holder

  • How to write an effective query and synopsis by Romy Sommer

These webinars have been so successful that we've decided to continue offering them throughout the year. We have editors both from Lapa Uitgewers and from a major US-based Romance publisher publisher lined up as guest speakers, and we would also like your suggestions and proposals for future webinars. Please email your requests to


If you would like to volunteer to teach a webinar, please complete the proposal on this link. Presenters will be paid for their time.
