Virtual SOLA Meeting May 15th: RWA President LaQuette

SOLA is excited to be hosting RWA President, LaQuette, for her workshop titled “Critical Lens”.

Writing outside of your personal, generational, or cultural experience can be a treacherous road to travel for today’s author.  Even with the best intentions, it’s easy to create problematic or harmful content when you’re unaware of what you don’t know. Learn how to use literary theory and criticism to view your work through an alternative lens.  By using literary frameworks, you can gain insight into alternative perspectives that can help you identify and eliminate problematic and harmful content before you publish.

LaQuette writes savvy, sensational, & sexy romance featuring unapologetically diverse & bold characters who celebrate their right to appear on the page. A native of Brooklyn, NY and current President of RWA, she crafts emotionally epic, fantastical tales deeply pigmented by reality’s paintbrush.  Find her on Facebook, Twitter, her website:, Instagram & via email at

LaQuette’s qualifications include:

·      M.A. in English Literature

·      B.A. in Creative Writing

·      Advanced Certificate English Education grades 6-12

·      College Professor for a decade teaching literature, research writing, business writing, & creative writing.
