Guests may attend at most two regular chapter meetings

SRW welcomes writers of any race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, tribe, socio-economic status, neurodiversity, and genre because #LoveIsLove. You must be actively pursuing a career as a romance writer to become a general member of the organization. We also accept associate members who write in genres other than romance, publishing industry professionals, and bloggers.
