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.

August 18 – Amanda Barnett

Meet the Editor

Amanda Barnett, Senior Editor, from the Wild Rose Press will be discussing the do’s and don’ts of how to get and keep an editor’s attention—for both published and unpublished authors—as well as choosing the best point of view for your work. Remember even though an author may be published, it does not necessarily guarantee a new contract.  And for those who are not published, this is a good way to learn why some editors reject a manuscript from the query and synopsis stage, and what makes an editor rush to contract from the first few pages.


Amanda Barnett loves to read and to edit. She has been in the publishing world in one capacity or other since 2000. Presently she enjoys being a senor editor at The Wild Rose Press for the Fantasy line. She loves working with authors and helping them to fine-tune their work.  Her joy comes when she too sees the finished product of a writer’s heart, and she loves to help them achieve their dreams.
