Our Chapter

Indiana Romance Writers of America is a chapter of the Romance Writers of America® (RWA) since our founding in 1982. We are a professional organization dedicated to creating high-quality romance writing in all genres through education and networking among authors, editors, agents, and others in the publishing industry. Our mission is to educate and encourage authors at all levels in their pursuit of excellence in romance writing.

We are an active chapter, with members writing in a broad spectrum of romance genres. Beginning writers to multi-published authors make up our membership and all levels are welcome to join us. While we try to keep things light, motivate our members, and have a little fun, we never lose sight of the fact that romance writing is a business and an important part of the publishing industry.
