Qualifying Markets

This guide provides information about the different levels of participation available to Qualifying Markets at the RWA Conference. “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 Professional Relations Manager Carol Ritter at 832-717-5200, Ext. 127, or

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.
