RWA2016 Workshop Change

Romance Writers of America is committed to improving programs and services for traditionally marginalized individuals within RWA and to advocating for inclusivity that will benefit all romance writers and readers. This goal requires us to navigate complex and sensitive issues.

When members of the disabled community brought to RWA’s attention concerns with a workshop on the RWA2016 schedule, the Board of Directors thoughtfully considered all the facts and decided a better way to handle the workshop’s subject matter is for RWA to host a roundtable at the conference in order to ensure that viewpoints from a variety of interested parties are included (instead of relying on one person).

This situation has brought to light areas where RWA needs to improve its processes, and we appreciate members’ patience with us as we work toward our goal of making the association more inclusive for all romance writers.
