Georgia Romance Writers, a chapter of ROMANCE WRITERS OF AMERICA®, is made up of approximately 200 serious, professional writers, nearly one-third of whom are multi-published in book length fiction.
A non-profit organization, we are dedicated to bringing quality women’s fiction to the market. Our mission is to promote high quality romance writing; to disseminate information regarding all aspects of the romance genre; and to give support and encouragement to members.
GRW was founded in 1982, held its first regional conference the same year, and has grown steadily ever since. But the heart and soul of GRW are its members who reach out to every writer who is dedicated to his or her craft.
This is the professional textbook description of GRW, but those who know it best will tell you that GRW is a “happening place” where the diligent succeed and that success is revered and celebrated by all.
We are friends and we care.
Come join us and share in that joy.
Instead of a monthly meeting, GRW is hosting the annual Moonlight & Magnolias Conference, featuring bestselling authors, fabulous workshops, book signing, and the Maggie Awards Ceremony. Registration is closed, but you can still come to the book signing and meet some of your favorite authors. Click on the link for a list of participating authors.
In November, we’ll have our normal monthly meeting, featuring Anna DeStefano.
Anna DeStefano is the award-winning, nationally bestselling author of more than twenty-five books, including the Mimosa Lane novels and the Atlanta Heroes series. Born in Charleston, South Carolina, she’s lived in the South her entire life. Here latest best-selling release is Here in My Heart, a novella that introduces her new spin-off series, Echoes of the Heart. Look for Waiting for Your Love, coming in May, 2015.
Anna’s background as a care provider and adult educator in the world of crisis and grief recovery lends itself to the deeper psychological themes of every story she writes. A wife and mother, she currently writes in a charming northeast suburb of Atlanta, Georgia, not all that different from her characters’ beloved Chandlerville. She is also a workshop and keynote speaker, a writing coach, and a freelance editor.
