About MoRWA

Who...

MoRWA represents around 70 established and aspiring authors in the St. Louis and Metro-East regions, encompassing not only the traditional romance genre, but mainstream, suspense, and other genres as well.  

What and Why...

Our goal is to foster professionalism in the romantic fiction field and to provide support and information to members.  To that end, we meet monthly to provide a wide array of seminars by established authors, others in the publishing industry, and experts from the St. Louis community.  Members are also encouraged to join small critique groups, an invaluable tool for honing the craft and encouraging each other.  MoRWA publishes a monthly newsletter, Rumpled Sheets, with local and national news from the romantic fiction industry, articles, tips, and more. 

Where and When...

MoRWA meets monthly.  Our June and August 2016 location will be at the Dielmann Community Center in Creve Coeur, MO.   (Click HERE for a map or see below).  Our day often begins with the Board of Directors meeting at 8:30 a.m., followed by a a "Coffee Talk" topic conducted at 9:30, followed at 10:00 a.m. with a chapter business meeting.  The scheduled program begins around 11 a.m. and normally lasts for one hour, followed with lunch at a local restaurant.  All times are subject to change however, so check the Calendar page for the current month's schedule.

How much...

Membership is open to all current members of Romance Writers of America, our parent organization, at an annual fee of $25.  Guests are welcome to attend our monthly meetings, but there is a guest fee of $5 per meeting.  After attending two meetings, guests will be required to join the chapter.  (Occasionally for special events, the guest fee may be higher than normal.  Check our Calendar page for that month's information.)
