Welcome to the home on the web for the Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America (GSRWA).
Your novel's opening hook - The Opener - is what attracts an editor or agent. Polish the first seven pages of your manuscript and enter the Emerald City Opener Contest, sponsored by GSRWA. Winners will be announced at the Emerald City Writers' Conference
Each year, the Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America hosts the Emerald City Writer's Conference. This year, it will occur on October 18-20th, at the Westin Hotel in Bellevue. Registration will open June 1, 2013.
Located in the Seattle/Puget Sound area of Washington State, the Greater Seattle chapter is on a mission to promote excellence in romantic fiction. Our goal is to help writers become published in the romance genre, and provide a place where writers (both published and unpublished) can come for growth, support and information.
We are proud of our authors and the fact that the Northwest continues to be a hotbed of talent, with many of our members on the NYT Best Sellers list. Every year in the fall our chapter holds the popular Emerald City Writers' Conference, which is currently the largest romance writing conference on the west coast.
Please have fun exploring our site and don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions or would like more information.
