rwa.org — Romance Writers of America is dedicated to advancing the professional interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy. The association represents more than 10,250 members in 145 chapters offering local or special-interest networking and education. Learn more.   Romance Writers of America® (RWA) was chartered in 1981 to serve as a nonprofit trade association for romance writers. The mission of Romance Writers of America is to advance the professional interests of career-focused romance writers through networking and advocacy. RWA works to support the efforts of its members to earn a living, to make a full-time career out of writing romance—or a part-time one that generously supplements his/her main income. More than 10,000 romance writers and related industry professionals are members of Romance Writers of America. Although the association is called Romance Writers of America, membership is not limited to individuals living in the United States. Approximately 900 RWA members live outside the U.S., and RWA fosters connections between its members through the RWA Web site, www.rwanational.org, and its 145 local, online, and special-interest chapters. RWA's chapters provide opportunities for members to come together to discuss the industry and build connections with fellow romance writers. Romance Writers of America hosts an annual conference that provides the perfect opportunity for authors to increase their knowledge of the business and network with industry professionals and fellow writers. The conference offers more than 100 workshops with topics ranging from beginning writing skills to the business side of writing. Romance fiction editors and literary agents search for new talent in scheduled one-on-one interviews, give workshops, and network with attendees. RWA also sponsors the romance publishing industry's prestigious awards for published and unpublished romance writers — the RITA Awards and the Golden Heart Awards. These awards recognize excellence in romance fiction. As one of the largest writers associations, Romance Writers of America leverages its influence and credibility to advocate for improving business conditions in the romance publishing industry. Also, RWA promotes the romance genre through outreach programs for librarians and booksellers. The outreach doesn't stop with librarians and booksellers, however. Romance Writers of America also sponsors an academic grant annually to develop and support academic research devoted to genre romance novels, writers, and readers, as well as romance reader surveys and statistics reports.

internetwritingworkshop.org — The Internet Writing Workshop Write - Critique - Learn   The Internet Writing Workshop is a set of mailing lists (groups) that communicate in English by email. We are:   A community where writers can submit and critique written works. A forum to discuss and get help on all aspects of writing. A public service educational organization, staffed by volunteers and free of charge.   The Workshop is open to all styles and genres of writing: literary fiction, genre fiction, poetry, children's writing, essays, newspaper articles, scripts, you name it. Members do not need to be published writers, only to be serious about writing and about wanting to improve. Because some of the posted material may be controversial or adult in nature, all members must be 18 years or older.   The Workshop has two types of lists: critiquing and discussion.   1) Our Critiquing lists:   List Name Purpose Fiction Short stories in all genres. Lovestory-L Romance fiction from short stories to books. Nfiction All forms of Non-fiction. Novels-L Chapters of novels in all genres, and memoirs. Poetry-W All forms of poetry:Classical, free verse, concrete poetry, or prose poems. Practice-W Writing exercises are assigned weekly. Members post their responses and critique others' responses. Prose-P Brief fiction: Flash fiction, sudden fiction, micro fiction, postcard fiction, or short-short fiction. Script-W All forms of writing for performances: Theater, screen, radio, TV, etc. Yawrite All forms of writing for children and young adults: Fiction, poetry, non-fiction, picture books, novels, etc.   Members participate by submitting their works and critiquing other members' works.   There are minimum participation requirements for each list representing approximately one half hour per week. Most members exceed the minimum because they find the process so rewarding. Many are surprised to discover that they learn as much from doing critiques as from receiving them.   2) Our Discussion lists:   List Name Purpose Writing Discussions of all issues directly related to the craft or marketing of writing. Creative-D A sub-list of NFiction dealing with creative non-fiction and essays. MarketChat A sub-list of NFiction for discussion of the business aspects of freelance writing.
