RWA Spectrum Grant

The purpose of the RWA Spectrum conference grants is to demonstrate RWA’s commitment to diversity and inclusivity by ensuring that authors of Diverse Background are represented at RWA’s National Conference. RWA wants to affirm the principle that when Romance authors and the Romance genre more closely reflect the diversity of society, RWA, the publishing industry, and readers will benefit. The deadline to apply is February 22, 2018.
