Welcome to the Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America

We're dedicated to promoting excellence in romantic fiction by helping writers become published in the romance genre and providing a place where writers — both published and unpublished — can come for growth, support, inspiration, and education.

Upcoming Events

GSRWA meetings are open to chapter members and guests. Since membership dues support the costs of hosting these meetings, we ask that visitors join our organization after one or two visits if they wish to continue attending.

 

Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America board meetings have traditionally taken place before each general meeting, though meetings times have become more fluid due to shift to digital operations. If you would like to attend an upcoming board meeting, please contact us for arrangements.

Note: In accordance with recommendations from Seattle and King County Public Health aimed at slowing the spread of COVID-19, GSRWA monthly meetings are online until further notice.
