Thank you for visiting the website for the North Texas Romance Writers of America.


Can I come to a meeting before joining?

Absolutely! We'd love to meet you. Come to La Hacienda Ranch in Grapevine/Colleyville on the third Saturday of any month at 10 am. Please note that we do not meet in November because of Thanksgiving, and our meeting in December is on the SECOND Saturday for our holiday party.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID, NT meetings through August 2021 will be hosted via Zoom.


Why would I want to join?

Joining NTRWA gets you quite a bit. In addition to belonging to your tribe of fellow authors, you'll get access to all our monthly meetings and great speakers, discounts on entering the Great Expectations and The Carolyn Readers Choice contests, and the Get Published! program. It will also get you a discount on our bi-annual Two-Step Conference.


How much does it cost?

Membership is $35 for one year, starting the month you join.


What is the GetPublished! program?

GetPublished! is an initiative to help our not-yet-published authors achieve their goals. All members are invited to the info sessions prior to each meeting.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID, the GetPublished! meetings through August 2021 will be hosted via Zoom.


What is the difference between Great Expectations and The Carolyn contests?

In short, GE is for unpublished works, while The Carolyn is for published books. For detailed info, see our Contests page.
