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.
With over 20+ years of professional writing experience, Anju has been published in leading publications in Hong Kong, India, Singapore and the US. She has worked under the guidance of New York Times Bestselling Authors: Haywood Smith and Beverly Jenkins and USA Today Bestselling author Jade Lee. She even has literary agents as mentors and friends. Anju will talk about her writing journey, the diversity of her stories and characters and why she chose to pursue the traditional side of publishing in an ever-growing self-publishing market.
Fiction author, international freelance journalist, blogger, and former news reporter, Anju Gattani grew up in Hong Kong under the influence of cultural tides from the east and west. She was first published at the age of seven in Hong Kong’s leading English language newspaper – think ‘Bend It Like Beckham’ but writing instead of the soccer! Anju has also lived and been published in India, Australia, Singapore and USA in a variety of genres from fiction, feature, travel and news, to cover stories, interviews and perspective pieces. Her debut novel, Duty and Desire, A Tale of Modern India was published in 2011. Anju is represented by Bob Diforio at D4EO Literary Agency and writes fiction to Bridge Cultures and Break Barriers. She is currently at work on her third novel.
