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 remainder of 2023, CTRWA meetings are held Hybrid, on the second Saturday of the month. Our in-person home is Wolcott Public Library, 469 bound Line Road, Wolcott, CT.  The workshop/speaker is scheduled from 10:00-11:00 a.m.  Followed by a business meeting, 1 minute craft corner and critique group meeting.

Non-members can attend meetings to check out our fabulous group! Email for information on attending an upcoming meeting.

  • Members-only forums and archives.
  • Monthly meetings with speakers or workshops.
  • Monthly critique group.
