Chapters

Romance Writers of America's more than 100 chapters offer members the opportunity to come together to discuss the publishing industry and build connections with fellow romance writers.

RWA chapters generally meet once a month and often feature guest speakers, host local events, provide networking opportunities, and give RWA members the chance to talk with those who understand the ups and downs of the writing life.

In addition to local chapters, RWA has online chapters that are made up of members interested in a particular subset of romance fiction, such as Regency romance, inspirational romance, or paranormal romance. These chapters meet online and offer education and support tailored to the needs of writers who are interested in these romance subgenres.
