CPRW Statement of Purpose


Central Pennsylvania Romance Writers is an incorporated chapter of Romance Writers of America, a national professional association, and therefore adheres to its bylaws.

CPRW encourages excellence in romantic fiction, assists writers as they become published and establish their careers in the writing field, and provides continuing guidance and education for writers within the romance publishing industry.

CPRW offers personal and professional support to our members, both published and unpublished, and promotes the romance genre within our own communities.

You may visit as a guest for two meetings. Upon arrival of your third meeting you must be (1) a member of RWA and (2) a member of CPRW.
