Welcome!

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.



January 17, 2015 – Anne Bartolucci

About to start a tough scene? Oh, hey, let’s check out Facebook. Need to write those query letters? I really need to look up something on Pinterest right now, and the pantry has really needed to be organized for years…

Procrastination is one of the biggest challenges writers can struggle with, and when it comes to creative avoidance, our own creativity can be our downfall. Join clinical psychologist Anne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M. as she combines scientific knowledge and her own experiences with clients and her own writing to discuss why we do it, how to get around it, and even ways to prevent it. Don’t put it off – go ahead and plan to attend now!

Outside big smile sized for webAnne Bartolucci, Ph.D., C.B.S.M. became a clinical psychologist because she’s fascinated by people and their stories. The first draft of her dissertation, while not fiction, was still criticized by her major professor for being written in too entertaining a style. By day, she helps people cure their insomnia without using medication and also sees clients with depression and anxiety disorders. By night, she blogs about wine and writes fiction she hopes will keep her readers turning the pages all night. Yes, she recognizes the conflict of interest between her two careers, so she writes and blogs under the pen name Cecilia Dominic.  She lives in Atlanta, Georgia with one husband and two cats, which, she’s been told, is a good number of each. She currently writes the Lycanthropy Files series with Samhain Publishing and has a YA steampunk short story coming out soon in Abyss & Apex.
