MORWA represents approximately 60 established and aspiring authors in the St. Louis and Metro-East regions, encompassing all genres of romantic fiction.
Our goals are to foster professionalism in the romantic fiction field and to support our members in their writing careers. 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 our critique group, an invaluable tool for honing the craft and encouraging each other. MORWA publishes a monthly newsletter for our members.
MORWA is committed to being an inclusive, welcoming organization for all, no matter a person's race, color, gender, age, religion, national origin, marital status, sexual orientation, disability or politics. Annual dues are $25 per year.
