Join Passionate Ink for Renita McKinney’s live video workshop on “Diversity in Romance” on Wednesday, August 28th at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT (an audio-only recording will be available for those who can’t attend live). FREE for Passionate Ink Members/$45 for Non-Members.

Being sensitive to ethnic, cultural and societal issues in your writing is very important. Sometimes, even though it’s not intended, you can cross a line that might offend certain members of your reader base. Join editor Renita McKinney for her “Diversity in Romance” workshop to learn about the cultural and philosophical perspectives needed to navigate these touchy waters.

Renita McKinney was born in Texas, but raised in Arkansas and Texas. As an only child, she started reading and books became her best friends. The characters became her family and she developed a love and respect for writing, reading, books and authors. Reading developed into more than a hobby to Renita; it’s a passion, an unquenchable thirst. Not being able to read would seemingly be a slow and tortuous death.  She has been fortunate to live all over this world due to being the former wife of a military man. So often she would visit foreign countries that would not seem so foreign at all, because she had already traveled there within the confines of a book. Her passion for books, desire for writing and love for words have afforded her the opportunity to work with many New York Times, USA Today and Amazon bestselling authors.  She thinks there’s nothing more exciting than to be on the inside of a story coming together, nor amazing that her opinion and input is requested by these phenomenal storytellers.

Renita now lives in San Antonio, Texas and is the mother of three amazing kids, Holly, Lamontre and Brandon. She tries to read at least 500 books a year, and loves to hang out at her own version of Cheers; Lefty’s Draft House, where she truly has made family and friends.

This workshop is FREE to Passionate Ink Members and $45 for non-members, but we invite non-members to join Passionate Ink today for the same $45 price in order to get this workshop well as a second workshop in the fall for free. You’ll also receive discounts on our workshops for the rest of the year and access to our other member benefits.

This workshop will be a live video presentation on Wednesday, August 28, 2024 at 8 PM ET/5 PM PT. An audio-only recording will be available for registrants who cannot attend live.
