CTRWA is dedicated to supporting the efforts of those seeking a professional career in romance writing by providing information, networking and education.
The Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writers of America Inc. (CTRWA) is a local chapter of Romance Writers of America, an international organization of almost 9,000 members. Established in 1981, incorporated in 1986, CTRWA is a not-for-profit organization of women and men — published and unpublished — dedicated to romance writing, learning about the publishing industry and supporting each other’s endeavors. We have authors published in many genres including: romance, mystery, historical, paranormal, and even non-fiction. While CTRWA is an organization for romance writers, we do welcome authors from other genres as “associate” or “affiliate” members.
CTRWA meets on the second Saturday of every month at 11:00 a.m.
Our meetings are held at the Best Western Plus, formerly the Holiday Inn Conference, New Haven, CT (exit 12 off of Interstate 91). Lunch is $20 (PayPal cost may be more). Brown-bagging is more than welcome. A critique group begins at 9:30; chapter meeting begins at 11:00, followed by craft corner, Ask A Published Author, lunch and speaker at 12:45. Many times, we have a hands-on workshop or informal gathering afterward.
Published and non-published writers are welcome to attend and join. Non-members can attend two times for free to check our fabulous group!
