We are a local chapter of Romance Writers of America® (RWA), an international organization. RWA is a nonprofit trade association whose mission is to advance the professional and common business interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy and by increasing public awareness of the romance genre. CTRWA was established in 1981 and incorporated as a non-profit in 1986.
We welcome and support the efforts of authors, members, and guests from all backgrounds and strive to provide programming and events that are respectful, inclusive, equitable, and accessible for everyone.
CTRWA has authors writing in many genres. You don’t have to write romance to benefit from participation and membership. Published and non-published writers are welcome.
For the time being, CTRWA meetings are held via Zoom, on the second Saturday of the month. Member check-in and chapter news is from 9:00-10:00 a.m. The workshop/speaker is from 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Non-members can attend meetings to check out our fabulous group! Email firstname.lastname@example.org for information on attending an upcoming meeting.
