This April, we welcome Harlequin editors Stephanie Doig (Carina Press) and Lynn Raposo (HQN and Graydon House) for a casual, q&a-style discussion. Harlequin publishes a wide range of books, and Stephanie and Lynn will be happy to answer your questions about what makes a submission stand out and what happens behind the scenes at Harlequin!
We’ll be collecting your questions ahead of time and sharing them with the editors so we can make the most of this incredible opportunity.
We recommend visiting https://www.writeforharlequin.com/ ahead of the event—it has lots of great information on Harlequin’s lines (What is Harlequin Series?), writing craft and the submission process.
Stephanie Doig is an editor with Carina Press. She began her career at Harlequin in the proofreading department, and she worked as a copy editor and author liaison before moving to Editorial. Stephanie edits across genres and is especially interested in acquiring more character-driven contemporary romances with smart, sharp dialogue and deep emotion. You can find Stephanie on Twitter @StephanieDoig.
Lynn Raposo started her publishing career in 2017 as an intern at Penguin Random House Canada and went on to roles at HarperCollins Canada and Harlequin, where she now works as an Assistant Editor for Graydon House and HQN Books. She studied English, French, and Professional Writing at the University of Toronto before completing her publishing certificate at Humber College. She is a former bookseller and an avid piano player.
