What we are

Chapter #33, Region 5 of the Romance Writers of America® was organized in March 1983 and offers educational programs, an informative monthly newsletter, a friendly atmosphere for networking, and access to the latest information on agents, editors and publishers of romantic fiction. NTRWA's mission is to educate, support, and mentor published and unpublished members in the profession of romance writing.

Who we are

A group of romance authors who love creating happily ever afters for our characters. We work hard at our craft, support each other, take publishing seriously and still try to have fun at every turn. Stop in and visit with us at a meeting or two. We hope you'll find a kind, North Texas welcome.
