“Qualifying market” means any publisher, or any division, imprint, or line of a publisher that meets the criteria for extension of RWA-provided conference space and resources. Please note: If your publisher previously submitted a qualifying market questionnaire, you will not need to resubmit; however, RWA reserves the right to request updated information. To verify your publisher’s status, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
RWA evaluates each publisher or division, imprint, or line of a publisher and allocates conference space and resources to those Qualifying Markets that provide the greatest opportunities for career-focused romance writers.
An agent who agrees to abide by the RWA Code of Ethics for Industry Professionals and who satisfies qualifications to become RWA-Eligible may participate in RWA conference activities.
