The Regency Woman: Online Workshop at Colorado RomanceWriters

April 4 – 29, 2011

DESCRIPTION: The Regency woman. She was a woman of stern morals and little laughter. A governess who didn’t feel oppressed and a governess who did. She owned her own business. She was an author, a poet, a scientist, a runaway. She lived a discreet and quiet life and she was notorious. She was the faithful wife and the mother of many children, or a divorced woman who had to give up her children to escape her husband.

No one pattern, not even a pattern card of propriety, fits all the women but despite their differences there were some things they had in common. The class will look at the world of the Regency woman from the domestic, political, social, and economic angles, using the lives of real women as examples. While I will try to include a great deal of new material, some of the information I have presented before has to be repeated.

BIO: Nancy Mayer has been trying to write Regency romances for more years than she wants to remember. She is always getting distracted and sidetracked by research.

Found! ~ the new Regency Researcher Site

nancy-mayer-pageI may be late to the table, but just discovered this morning a new Regency site:  Nancy Mayer ~ Regency Researcher.  Nancy is gradually putting all her many-years worth of Regency and Jane Austen expertise onto her website, and we will be the grateful benefactors of her knowledge.  There is an excellent bibliography, a series of links, and the option to ask her any question you might have on the period.

    Here is the Subject Index:

Dance & Music
Law NEW!
Parliament & Politics
Period Publications
Peers & Peerage
Regency Fashion
Titles & Names

And remember to check back often as she continues to add information.


Thank you Nancy, for this lovely new addition to the online Regency world! [and a thank you to Susanna Ives for hosting Nancy on her website:  Susanna Ives ~ Regency Romance Writer!]
